Ayub bridge on River Swat washed away

-

SWAT: The tempestuous water of River Swat washed away a part of Ayub Bridge in Kanju, leaving 700,000 people trapped as their ground link stands cut off.

According to sources, the only Ayub Bridge that links Mingora and Kanju has been washed off overnight. It should be mentioned here that Pakistan Army, in the wake of massive 2010 flash floods, built temporary pathways over the bridge; but, the district administration did not pay attention to strengthen them.

A portion of Ayub Bridge was carried away by the strong currents of River Swat, cutting off the land links of Matta and Kabal with Mingora city. The local people demanded the government to immediately kick-start the relief activities.
