Turkey's IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation continued on Monday to deliver humanitarian aid to families hit by a massive landslide in northeast Afghanistan Anadolu Agency reported.

Challenging terrain conditions made the aid and rescue teams use "primitive methods" to deliver the aid packages containing food, rugs, blankets and kitchen utensils, a statement from the Istanbul-based foundation said.

Over 2,000 are considered dead after a landslide hit a village in Badakhshan province in northern Afghanistan on Friday.

Afghan officials formally stopped the search for survivors and declared the disaster area a "mass grave" on Saturday.
