Survivors sit with their possessions near the site of Friday's landslide that buried Abi-Barik village in Badakhshan province, northeastern Afghanistan on Saturday, May 3, 2014. Afghan rescuers and volunteers armed with shovels and little more than their bare hands dug through the mud Saturday after a massive landslide swept through a village the day before, turning it into an earthen tomb holding hundreds of bodies, officials said. Aid groups struggle to bring food, shelter and water to the region, as the government tries to ascertain just how many people were killed.
