Afghan Rail Line Aims to Carry Country's Minerals Play

Feb. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Atta Mohammad, a supervisor at the Naibabad freight terminal in northern Afghanistan, talks about operations along the country's only rail line from Uzbekistan. The 75-kilometer stretch of track is intended as the start of a 3,600-kilometer rail network intended to crisscross the country over the next two decades. The incentive to build the rail system: mineral riches believed to be buried beneath Afghanistan, including iron, copper and gold. (This report is in Pashto with English translation.
