Mr. Nouri added that the provincial governorate of Kabul, Kandahar, called for mediating local elders to open a Kabul-Kandahar highway since the protests broke out in the residents of Moqor district of Ghazni province. The protesters were allowed to travel to “passenger, food, including vegetables, fruits and meat” after joint efforts by the local Ghazni administration and the elders of Moqor district.
Ghazni Governor’s spokesman also said that more than a thousand vehicles on either side of the Kabul-Kandahar highway were stopped this week, and now it has not been allowed to carry non-carriage carriers.
