Road blockade raises concerns over humanitarian crisis in Nuristan province

nuristan 2The only road leading from the capital of Kunar to Nuristan has been blocked due to security concerns for the past two months.

The prolonged road blockade has caused prices of food and other commodities to skyrocket and has raised concerns that humanitarian crisis might broke out, if the issue was not addressed.

According to the Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN), a 50-kg bag of flour had shot up from 1,500 AFN to 7,500 AFN.

Addressing a press conference in Kabul, governor’s spokesperson Zahir Bahand asked for the deployment of more security personnel to the province.
