CHARIKARinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The busy Salang Highway, linking Kabulinfo-icon with northern parts of the country, has been closed for traffic as a result of heavy snowfall, an official said on Saturday.

Abdul Basir Habibi, the highway maintenance commander, told Pajhwok Afghan News the snowfall that started on Friday was recorded at one metre.

The highway’s closure came following 25 avalanches. In the winter, traveling the highway is dangerous for passengers due to heavy snow and harsh cold weather.
