Afghanistan earthquake: India air force plane carrying aid lands in Kabul | On camera

India was left with no diplomatic presence in Kabul after it evacuated its staff ahead of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan last year.

India has flown emergency relief assistance and a technical team to Kabul to help the people of eastern Afghanistan after a powerful earthquake that killed 1,150 people.

Residents in the hardest-hit areas appeared to largely be on their own in trying to survive, with the Taliban-led government and the international aid community struggling to bring in help.

The 27 tons of relief assistance in two flights are comprised of essential items, including family ridge tents, sleeping bags, blankets and sleeping mats, an Indian government statement said.

The relief consignment will be handed over to the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs and the Afghan Red Crescent Society in Kabul.

A technical team has been deployed to India's embassy in the Afghan capital to coordinate the delivery of humanitarian assistance, the statement said.
