Afghans stage anti-US demonstration

Sep 25,

Hundreds of Afghans have taken to the streets to voice their anger over a US-led attack that killed dozens in the volatile eastern parts of country.

The deadly US-led attack, which took place on Friday, prompted hundreds of people to stage an anti-US demonstration in Afghanistan’s eastern Laghman Province on Saturday.

Several protesters have reportedly been injured after police fired warning shots to disperse the crowd.

The protest comes as, according to local sources, 30 civilians including women and children lost their lives in the US-led military operation in the province.

NATO officials, however, said gunmen were the target of the attack.

The protesters argue that Afghan civilians mainly fall victim to such US-led military operations.

Hundreds of civilians have lost their lives in US-led airstrikes and ground operations in different parts of the war-ravaged country over the past months.

The loss of civilian lives at the hand of foreign forces has led to a dramatic increase of anti-American sentiments in Afghanistan.
