Afghanistan crisis: Taliban disperse Kabul protests with gunfire

CA, 07 Sep 2021
Hundreds of men and women in Kabul shouting slogans such as "Long live the resistance," and "Death to Pakistan" marched in the streets on Tuesday to protest against what they say is Pakistan's involvement in the country which is now controlled by the Taliban.

During the protests, Taliban gunmen fired in the air to disperse the anti-Pakistan protesters and break up the march, witnesses said, as video recorded showed scores of people running for cover as volleys of gunfire could be heard.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.

The Taliban have repeatedly sought to reassure Afghans and foreign countries that they will not return to the brutality of their last reign two decades ago, marked by violent public punishments and the barring of women and girls from public life.
