CHARIKARinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The strategic Salang passinfo-icon north of Kabulinfo-icon has been closed against heavy traffic following continued snowing, an official said on Friday.

Heavy snow and storm lashed the Salang pass in central Parwan province for two days, prompting authorities to close the highway on Wednesday for heavy traffic to avoid mishaps, the Salang district chief, Sabir Ahmadi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said so far 60 centimeters of snow had been measured in southern Salang, urging drivers to equip themselves with winter gear while plying the route.

The Salang highway connects central capital Kabul with nine northern provinces.
