The United Nations says the death toll is at least 770, which could rise.

After decades of war, hunger, poverty and economic crisis, the devastation caused by the earthquake has made Afghanistan even more difficult. This situation has also become a test for the Taliban on how to deal with it and how the international community Are encouraged to provide assistance.

When the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, international aid was cut off.

The international community imposed further sanctions. Transfers from banks were stopped and billions of dollars of Afghan assets abroad were frozen.

The Taliban government has not yet been recognized internationally. The Taliban are being called upon to include all sections in the government and respect human rights.
