KABUL Men's Air Max 97 Premium Shoes Blue Sale , Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- Rescue and relief workers have increased emergency response efforts for the victims of a deadly earthquake in Afghanistan, said an official of the country's National Disaster Management Authority (ANDMA) on Tuesday.

"The latest information by ANDMA showed that 74 people were killed while 343 others were wounded by Monday's massive earthquake," Mohammad Hassan Sayas, deputy to ANDMA, told Xinhua by phone.

A 7.5-magnitude earthquake with a depth of 210 km hit the Hindu Kush mountain range in northern Afghanistan at 0909 GMT on Monday, with strong tremors also felt in Pakistan and India.

Up to 3,297 houses and compounds had been destroyed or severely damaged by the natural disaster in the affected provinces and the number may rise Men's Air Max 97 KPU TPU Shoes Dark Blue Red Sale , he said.

All national and international aid agencies, including Afghan Red Crescent, have been in close contact with ANDMA, Sayas said, adding, "there has been a close and proper coordination between the disaster agency and all national and international aid agencies as well as the ministries for defense and interior for providing assistance to the affected areas."

"As of now, our agency is in need of non-food stuffs namely tents Men's Air Max 97 OG GS Shoes All Blue Sale , blankets, kitchen tools and clothes," he said.

"We are still collecting reports on casualties and damage, but the number of deaths and wounded will likely increase," Sayas said.

Dozens of relief workers have already arrived in areas in northern Badakhshan, Takhar, Parwan and eastern Nangarhar Shoes Air Max 97 OG Undefeated Sail White Sale , as well as in Kunar provinces. "Food kits and kitchen tools have also been distributed to victims and survivors in many villages," added Sayas.

Parts of eastern Kabul, including Kabul city, Nuristan, Laghman,and northern Baghlan provinces were also affected by the disaster.

"Luckily, the quake began with a weak tremor Air Max 97 OG Undefeated Shoes Militia Green Sale , giving people a chance to leave their houses for safer areas. Fortunately, the casualties are lower than initially expected," Sayas said.

"Nearly all of the affected areas are located in mountainous provinces. Some of our rescue teams and assessment groups have been facing difficulties in reaching far-flung villages. They have been facing the challenges of difficult terrain as many rough roads are blocked by quake-triggered landslides," the disaster official noted.

When asked whether the country was in need of assistance, the official said that the United States, Turkey and Iran have showed their readiness to offer assistance to the ongoing relief efforts.

"We are appreciative of their moves and we would welcome any kind of assistance provided by any country," he said.

Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani said he was greatly saddened by the casualties and losses caused by Monday's earthquake Air Max 97 OG Undefeated Shoes Black Sale , and expressed his sympathies and condolences to the families of the victims, according to a statement posted on the country's presidential Palace website.

"President Ghani has assigned an assessment committee to provide emergency assistance for the victims. Also, the President has directed the Ministry of Public Health to take immediate action to provide treatment for the injured," the statement read.

On Monday afternoon, shortly after the disaster, the chief executive of the government, Abdullah Abdullah Men's Air Max 97 Shoes Gold Yellow Black Sale , presiding over the meeting of NDMA, instructed the Ministry for Public Health as well as national and international aid agencies to cooperate in the best interests of the affected people in the quake-hit areas.

Earlier in the day, Khwaja Qamaruddin Seddiqi, an advisor to the country's public health ministry, told a local publication that 78 people were confirmed dead while 480 others sustained injures as of Tuesday afternoon.

"The number of casualties may go up to over 100 and more than 500 injured in the coming hours," Seddiqi said.

LONDON, May 5 (Xinhua) -- Almost half of baby rice food products contain illegal levels of inorganic arsenic Men's Air Max 97 Ultra Shoes All Black Sale , researchers from Queen's University in Belfast discovered in a study published Thursday.

Researchers at the university's Institute for Global Food Security found that little has changed despite the European Union introducing new regulation to tackle arsenic levels.

Some 50 percent of baby rice food products still contain an illegal level of inorganic arsenic, said the researchers.

In January 2016, the EU imposed a maximum limit of inorganic arsenic on manufacturers in a bid to mitigate associated health risks.

The researchers had tested 13 types of baby rice, 29 packets of rice cakes, and 31 types of rice cereal from nine different brands or manufacturers from 17 different shops in Belfast, capital of Northern Ireland.

Prof. Andy Meharg, lead author of the study and professor of Plant and Soil Sciences at Queen's Men's Air Max 97 KPU TPU Shoes Black White Sale , said: "This research has shown direct evidence that babies are exposed to illegal levels of arsenic."

"Babies are particularly vulnerable to the damaging effects of arsenic that can prevent the healthy development of a baby's growth, IQ and immune system to name but a few," Meharg said.

A spokesman at Queen's said rice typically has ten times more inorganic arsenic than other foods.

The research findings were published in the PLOS ONE journal, indicating how researchers compared levels of arsenic in urine samples among infants who were breast-fed or formula-fed before and after weaning.

According to the results, higher concentration of arsenic was found in formula-fed infants, particularly among those who were fed non-dairy formulas, which includes rice-fortified formulas favored for infants with dietary requirements such as wheat or dairy intolerance.

The weaning process further increased infants' exposure to arsenic Air Max 97 Shockproof Shoes Black White Sale , with babies five times more exposed to arsenic after the weaning process, highlighting the clear link between rice-based baby products and exposure to arsenic, the report claimed.
