The Taliban authorities have called for more international aid after the deadliest earthquake to strike Afghanistan in two decades.

The earthquake struck early on Wednesday about 44km (27 miles) from the city of Khost and tremors were felt as far away as Pakistan and India.

The United Nations is among those scrambling to provide emergency shelter and food aid to remote areas in the worst-hit Paktika province.

Afghanistan's health system was facing near collapse even before the disaster.
