PUL-I-KHUMRI (Pajhwok): The strategic Salang passinfo-icon, linking Kabulinfo-icon with northern parts of the country, has been closed for traffic as a result of heavy snowfall and snowstorms, an official said on Monday.

Abdul Basir Habibi, the highway’s maintenance commander, told Pajhwok Afghan News the road had to be closed due to heavy snowstorms since the Sunday night.

Habibi added some passengers were stranded in the northern part of the tunnel but were rescued. In the winter, travelling the highway is dangerous for passengers due to heavy snow and cold weather.
