Pakistan - Afghanistan Torkham Border Opens for 24 Hours for the First Time in the Recent History

Torkham - A border between Pakistan Khyber district & Afghanistan's Nangarhar State will now stay open 24×7. This is going to happen for the first time in recent history.

According to the Express Tribune, Mahmood Wazir, Khyber district's Deputy Commissioner told media about this decision on Saturday.
