JALALABAD (Pajhwok): At a cost of 85 million afghanis, construction work on two road projects has been launched in Behsud district of eastern Nangarhar province, an official said Saturday.

The two roads would take nine months to complete, said provincial rural rehabilitation and development director, Eng. Mujib Rahman Zia.

He said a 5.7-kilometer road would be asphalted in Zangoyee village and another 4.3 kilometer road in Muqam Khan village.

Governor Mohammad Gulab Mangal termed the projects as important and said it was another step towards peace and stability in Nangarhar.
