JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Three young Kuchi tribesmen and their 150 sheep were killed in a cave collapse incident in eastern Nangarhar province, an official said Thursday.

Governor’s spokesman, Attaullah Khogyani, told Pajhwok Afghan News the cave collapsed in Pairakhel area of Achin district on Wednesday night following frequent rains.

He said the three Kuchi youth guided their sheep to the cave due heavy raining, but the cave fell on them.

Governor Mohammad Gulab Mangal expressed his grief over the incident and directed Natural Disaster Management Authority officials to survey the rain-induced damages in the province and provide assistance to the affected households.
