Municipality gives women bouquets
At a function marking International Women's Day, Mayor Mohammad Yunus Nawandesh said gifting flowers was meant to encourage females to grow plants in their neighbourhoods.
He said that Kabul -- home to around five million people -- had only seven recreational parks. Fifteen more recreational parks would be set up in different parts of the province in a year, he promised.
The day was celebrated in major cities of Afghanistan, where many of women's problems are yet to be addressed.
