Turkmenistan - The Central Asian country of Turkmenistan has banned most locals in its major cities from using their cars for a day in a bid to promote cycling and healthy lifestyles.

Residents of the capital, Ashgabat, and regional cities were told not to use their vehicles between 7am and 7pm Saturday without express permission as the government staged mass cycle rides. Top officials were expected to take part.

Many residents commuted to work on foot Saturday as temperatures reached 40.6 Celsius.
