More than 200 people attended the rally that lasted 30 minutes in the Khair Khana area. A resolution was issued at the end of the demonstration that was arranged by the National Participation Front. The resolution warned Pakistan against the continuation of the cross border attacks.

Local officials say 800 artillery shells had so far been fired into Afghanistan this year, killing and wounding more than 80 people and displacing hundreds others in eastern Afghanistan.

Recently, 33 shells were fired into Dangam and Nari districts of eastern Kunar province, leaving six people dead and several others wounded, in addition to causing damages to civilian houses.

Protestors urged the UNSC to disband Pakistan's nuclear programme as the country posed a serious threat to Afghanistan.

The protesters also chanted slogans like "death to Pakistan". Shelling from Pakistan was causing insecurity in Afghanistan, they said.

They called the Pakistan government a headache for Afghanistan as well as for the whole worldinfo-icon.
