Historial de sismos violentos no Afeganistão

By Ninian Carter

October 9, 2023 - O Afeganistão, rodeado de montanhas, tem uma longa história de sismos violentos, muitos na cordilheira de montanhas Hindu Kush que se estende pelo centro do Afeganistão até às áreas fronteiriças do Paquistão e Tajiquistão.

More than 2,400 people are known to have been killed, and at least 2,000 injured in two earthquakes which struck Afghanistan near the city of Herat, on October 7, the Taliban administration says – the deadliest in years.
