Afghan officials say that at least five people have been killed and 17 more are still missing after a new wave of heavy rain and flooding swept across the country, according to Aljazeera

Worst hit has been the western province of Herat. Hamid Mubarez, the director of disaster and humanitarian affairs in Herat, says the 17 people who were missing were last heard of while travelling in a van in a district of Obey.

The country's disaster ministry says heavy rain has hit 16 of Afghanistan's 34 provinces in the past 24 hours.

Floods have destroyed homes, swept away livestock and rendered the main highway south of Kabul impassable.
