AKIPRESS.COM - More than 100 trucks stuck on the way to the largest Fon-Yaghnob coal mine in Tajikistan, which is located in Ayni district due to the snowfall, the Tajik language service of RFE/RL reports.

One of the truck drivers Farhod Radjobov on November 26 said that they do not know when the help will come. Others say that they were heading to Ayni district to deliver coal for heating some of the enterprises and schools as soon as possible due to the weather condition.
