Afghanistan tunnel avalanches kill 28 in Hindu Kush

A series of avalanches around a mountain tunnel in Afghanistan has killed at least 28 people and left hundreds more stranded, officials say. Some 70 people have been injured, and officials fear the number of casualties could rise further. The avalanches - following several days of heavy snow - hit the area around the Salang Tunnel, high in the Hindu Kush.
