Concrete houses, also dating from Soviet years, line the few streets. Some of the buildings are unfinished; others have been ransacked. The walls of the half-built cultural centre at the entrance to the town have long since been removed.

DUSHANBE, April 14 (AFP) - A child was killed and a dozen homes destroyed in Tajikistan as heavy rains triggered massive mudslides over the weekend, the emergencies ministry said Monday.

The ministry said the 12-year-old was a boy, but the interior ministry said the victim was a girl.

Around 200 houses were affected by the mudslides -- many left without electricity -- and around 500 domesticated
