balkhFlights have been cancelled in northern Balkh province since Tuesday as a result of heavy flood that has gushed water into the airport’s terminal and runway.

Governor’s spokesman Munir Farhad acknowledged the flooding had also damaged some airport terminal equipment. He hoped the problem would be resolved later in the day.

At least 20 people have been killed and nearly 2,000 households affected by the floods in the provincial capital, Mazar-i-Sharif, and three nearby towns — Sholgar, Kushanda and Charkant.
