Taliban fire warning shots at protest in Taliban

Taliban has fired warning shots to disperse the protesting crowd in Kabul. Video footage from the scene shows people running to safety, while heavy gunfire can be heard in the background. Hundreds of protesters protested in the streets to denounce Taliban rule and demand women’s rights. Protesters also chanted anti-Pakistan slogans, as many believe neighbouring Pakistan supports the Taliban, which the country denies.

Women were already protesting for their rights and on Tuesday men also joined them. The protesters chanted “Long live resistance” and “death to Pakistan”.
