CHARIKARinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The strategic Salang passinfo-icon, linking Kabulinfo-icon with northern parts of the country, has been shut for traffic as a result of a strong snowstorm, the Highway Maintenance Department said on Sunday.

The road had to be closed for traffic due to a strong storm Saturday night, a statement from the department said, adding a rescue team had been dispatched to the northern part of the tunnel.

The delegation would help move vehicles and equipment to safe places at the earliest possible. In the winter, travelling the highway is dangerous for passengers due to heavy snow and cold weather.
