ASADABAD (Pajhwok): Security forces reopened a road passing through Nari district in southern Kunar province after three days consecutive operation, an official said on Monday.

Abdul Habib Sayedkhel, provincial police chief, said that rebels had planted landmines on the road between Asadabad, the provincial capital, and Nari district.

It was almost impossible for commuters to travel on the road, he recalled. In addition, the residents of Kamdish and Bargimatal districts in neighboring Nuristan province faced with immense problems because of blockades of the road.

A total of 17 landmines had been defused, with insurgents planted 25 landmines on one kilometres area, he informed.
