A five-year-old boy, Haidar, slipped Tuesday to the bottom of a well being dug in Shokak, a parched village in Zabul province, around 400 kilometers (250 miles) southwest of the capital Kabul in an Afghan village.
Rescuers worked non-stop to reach the boy, who officials said was still alive Friday morning before Taliban officials later announced he had died after being trapped for three days.
In a Tweet made by Taliban Interior Ministry Senior Adviser, Anas Haqqani “With great sorrow, young Haidar is separated from us forever.”
