A landslide in Pakistan has killed three people, wounded several others and buried nearly two dozen vehicles.
The landslide occurred on Tuesday near Torkham, a border crossing between Pakistan and Afghanistan in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
Local police officer Saleem Kalachi told Al Jazeera three people have died in the incident so far.
“This is a big landslide and the evacuation process will take some time to complete. There are around 20 to 25 vehicles that were buried under the landslide."
Bilal Faizi, the spokesman for the Rescue 1122 service in the province, also said the landslide took place after rain and thunderstorm were reported in the area.
Faizi said authorities have launched a search operation to look for people trapped under the landslide.
He added there could be more than 20 vehicles, including large trucks, under the rubble.
