During the night from Wednesday to Thursday, gunmen blew up a bridge on the road connecting the towns of Kaya and Dori, one of the main routes between the capital and the north of the country.

Even goods cannot circulate. There are people who left Dori to come here, to buy goods to sell them, but all has stopped for them too. “It’s impossible to go to Dori because of the bridge.
