China to provide $7.5 mln in humanitarian aid to Afghanistan – foreign ministry

The Chinese foreign ministry announced on Saturday that China will send 50 million yuan ($7.5 million) in humanitarian relief to Afghanistan in response to this week’s earthquake there, which claimed more than 1,000 lives.

The aid will include tents, towels, beds and other materials, the ministry said in a statement on its website.

The 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck Afghanistan early on Wednesday near the Pakistani border, about 160 km (100 miles) southeast of Kabul.
