Aid started to arrive in Afghanistan on Thursday, where an earthquake claimed 1,000 lives, and Taliban leaders announced the rescue effort was nearly completed.
Around 100 miles southeast of Kabul, in dry mountains close to the Pakistani border, a magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck the area early on Wednesday.
More than 1,500 villagers were injured and around 1,000 were rescued by Thursday morning.
Data from the U.S. government shows that the death toll makes it the deadliest earthquake to strike Afghanistan in 20 years.
Since the Taliban took control, the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan has gotten worse, according to aid workers, and sanctions have cut off the nation from much international aid.
The Afghan foreign ministry's spokesperson, Abdul Qahar Balkhi, reiterated calls for assistance on Thursday.
