Aug. 18 2021 A video posted on social media showed a large number of abandoned military vehicles on the Afghan border, causing several transport vehicles returning from Afghanistan to Uzbekistan to be trapped at the border, causing traffic jams, Russian satellite news agency reported Wednesday.
The trucks were reportedly trapped near a bridge linking the two countries. A truck driver who uploaded the video pointed out that the customs building and the bridge were crowded with abandoned cars that prevented him from returning home, and that the owners of the vehicles had fled to Uzbekistan.
He also noted that some truck drivers were searching around, collecting weapons left in the vehicle. Uzbekistan’s foreign ministry said last week that many people had gathered at the bridge on the Afghan side on August 14.
