Sudden Closure Of Chaman Crossing Leads To Protests And Deaths

At least two Afghan people, including a woman and a child, were killed and over 20 were injured, as they protested the sudden closure of the Chaman/Spin Boldak crossing between Pakistan and Afghanistan on Thursday.

Last week, Pakistani authorities had temporarily allowed for the Chaman crossing to stay open till Eid al-Adha for transit trade and pedestrians.

The sudden closure upset people and hundreds entered the quarantine centre established for COVID-19 patients and torched it.

Social media videos show scenes of chaos with rioters setting beds and mattresses on fire.
