 KABUL (PAN) Dozens of Afghan women rally to denounce violence against women in Kabul on Thursday.

 The demonstrators want violence against women to be abolished or at least decreased in Afghanistan, but unfortunately it is increasing day to day, rights activist Humaira Rasouli says.

Concern has risen after rights organizations last year found that Afghan women are frequently victims of violence despite a law against it and increased prosecution of abusers.
