"If the problem is not taken seriously, the border town of Hairatan and the Dosti Bridge [to Uzbekistan], which is the biggest bridge in Afghanistan with a length of one km, will also be damaged due to the flooding.” He says that the Afghan side uses sandbags to shore up river banks while its neighbours use concrete walls.(20100401)
