  Border walls and deportations: Biden’s migrant plans prompt outrage UN says estimate of 320 fatalities is being verified, although local authorities put the death toll at 100, with 500 injured A series of violent earthquakes in western Afghanistan have killed hundreds of people.    The United Nations said more than 320 people had lost their lives, but later said the number was still being confirmed. A local Taliban official told the Guardian that the death toll was "much higher."     "The number of martyrs is huge, and many are still lying under the rubble," said a local Taliban official. “The Islamic Emirate is doing its best to help its people, but we need help.”      A preliminary report from the US Geological Survey (USGS) said that "significant losses are likely to occur and the disaster could be widespread." “Past events at this alert level required a regional or national response.”      Maps posted on
