PUL-I-ALAM (PANinfo-icon): Hundreds of residents of Charkh district in central Logar province on Friday protested against NATOinfo-icon-led forces for arresting two sons of a prayer leader.

Foreign troops on Thursday night detained the two sons of Maulviinfo-icon Sahibzada, prayer leader of the district's main mosqueinfo-icon, in the Bazar area during an operation.

The district development council head, Mohammad Naeem, told Pajhwok Afghan News that hundreds of people took part in the demonstration to condemn nighttime operations by foreign troops. He insisted the two detainees were locals and had been arrested without any charges.

Protestors vowed to continue their protest until the two were released. They said their next demonstration would be held in the capital city.

They demanded of the government to stop unilateral operations by foreign troops, otherwise, the situation could lead to public uprising.

Police chief, Col. Ghulam Sakhi Rogh Liwanai, urged protestors to avoid causing damage to public and private properties during their protest. He said he had talked to local officials about the protest and their demands.
