KABUL (Reuters) - A search and rescue operation following a devastating earthquake in eastern Afghanistan has finished in major regions, but continues in some very far-flung areas, a disaster management official said on Thursday.

"The operation has finished in major districts but in some very far parts still it is continuing; the teams are working there, we can't say totally finished," spokesman for the Afghan disaster management authority, Mohammad Nassim Haqqani, told Reuters.
