An Afghan woman and four of her children have been killed and three people injured as a roof of a house collapsed in Nangarhar province, a local government spokesman said Monday.
The incident happened late Sunday evening in Juy area of Kot district, spokesman Atahullah Khogyani said.
The injured people suffering critical wounds were sent to a provincial hospital, said the spokesman
He added the house roof was badly soaked by the recent heavy rainfalls that ultimately wrecked and caused the tragic incident.
Roof collapse incidents frequently happen in Afghanistan as most of the houses and shops in countryside have been built with mud and woods.
