Torkham crossing way reopens after deadly clashes

Afghan and Pakistani officials say Pakistan has reopened a main border crossing with Afghanistan that was closed earlier this week following clashes between the two sides over Pakistan’s construction of a gate to curb illegal cross-border movement.

The officials say Torkham gate reopened Saturday morning and that all those carrying valid travel documents are being allowed to cross.

According to a Pakistani spokesman of foreign office the historic trade route was reopened for traffic after officials from both countries met early Saturday and the curfew was lifted at Torkham.

Thousands of people have been stranded on both sides due to the border closure on Sunday, when Pakistan and Afghanistan began trading fire and two Afghan border guards and one Pakistani army officer were killed.
