The Afghan government has declared a day of national mourning for hundreds of people killed when a mudslide engulfed their village on Friday.

Badakhshan provincial governor Shah Waliullah Adib said there was now no hope for more than 2,000 people believed buried in their homes.

Officials formally ended the search for survivors on Saturday.
