Swat: The main Kalam road has been closed for vehicular traffic, after a land sliding triggered by heavy rains blocked the road at the Asrit area of Swat.

The heavy downpour caused land sliding at three places, causing blockade of the main thoroughfare and rendering people and tourists trapped in Kalam Valley.

The blockade has caused long queues of vehicles o both sides of the highway. Assistant Commissioner Bahren Kamran Khan said that work was under way to clear the debris. He, however, could not give specific time for clearing the road.
