MEHTARLAM (PAN): The foundation stone of three projects, including a library, was laid and a fourth completed in eastern Laghman province on Wednesday, an official said.  

Work on a 610 meters protective wall was completed in the Kandy village of Alingar district, a United Nation Development Program (UNDP) official told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Waliullah Hamdard said the UNDP-funded project was executed at a cost of $141,000 and took six months to complete. He added the wall would prevent 50 families and 50 acres of agricultural land from flood risk.  

Hamdard said work on a similar wall, with a 190 metres length, was launched in Kota Khail village of the district. The project will cost $58,000.

Elsewhere in the province, the foundation stone of a library was laid in the Kandy village, Hamdard said, adding the project would cost $137,000 and take 10 months to complete.
