S. Arabia donates carpets, loudspeakers to mosques

KABUL (PAN): A Saudi charity on Wednesday announced donating new carpets and loudspeakers to 600 major mosques in 32 provinces of Afghanistan.

The delivery of 100,000 square metres carpets and loudspeakers to mosques started on Wednesday in Kabul, a statement from the charity said.

Minister of Hajj and Islamic Affairs Mohammad Yousuf Niazai, who also participated in a ceremony at the Eidgah Mosque, thanked the Saudi government for the assistance.

He urged similar donation to all mosques that lacked carpets and loudspeakers. The second phase of the delivery will start next week in western Herat province.
