Hundreds rally against NATO forces in Logar
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.
