President visits refugee camp

AAB BAREEK:

Afghan President Hamid Karzai visited a refugee camp for victims of a deadly landslide, trying to calm villagers angered by the slow delivery of emergency aid and an initial government refusal to help retrieve bodies.

More than 4,000 villagers were displaced by Friday's disaster, which buried some 300 homes.
