KABUL (Pajhwok): A 75-bed field hospital and a medical team have arrived from the UAE to treat survivors of a recent earthquake in southeastern Afghanistan.

The Emirates News Agency WAM reported the relief was flown into Afghanistan by three planes on the directives of UAE President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed.

Before dispatching the field hospital, with two operating rooms, the UAE sent Afghanistan 30 metric tonnes of food.

Eisa Salem Aldhaheri, the UAE ambassador to Afghanistan, was quoted as saying that the shipment was being used to deal with the food shortage issue.
