Posted by Kyle Brookings on Monday, January 7, 2019

At least 30 people are dead in Afghanistan after searching for gold in a riverbed.

While several villagers were in a riverbed, a flash flood hit the area, catching several villagers off guard.

There are still several people missing.

An official says the toll could rise.

Several more people were reported injured.

Afghanistan is actually rich in several different metals, however, security concerns have hindered any sort of viable development.
