The Ministry of Counternarcotics had pledged work on a dormitory for students, Paktia University Dean Obaidullah Paryar said.

In eastern Laghman province, a retaining wall was inaugurated. The 350-metre-long wall was constructed along Alingar River in the Jogi Qala area, on the outskirts of Mahtarlam.
