Snow adds to Afghan refugees' woes

Food, shelter and assistance all in scarce supply as weather compounds already dire circumstances.

    More than 20cm of snow has fallen on the Afghan capital, Kabul, making life for refugees who are already living in extreme conditions even worse.

    Those living in camps, who have fled violence in the south of the country, are pleading for government assistance to save them from the cold.
