Afghans left out in cold as temperatures plummet

Brutal winter exposes thousands to freezing temperatures.

Afghans left out in cold as temperatures plummet

As temperatures in Kabul drop to well below freezing and people struggle through another winter, the country is no closer to lasting peace or long-term economic stability.

Houses often have no running water or sanitation and there is a limited electricity supply.

Amnesty International reported 11 children and six adults have died this month due to cold weather, according to Reuters AlertNet.
