KABUL (Pajhwok): A large number of people on Tuesday staged a protest demonstration in front of the Iranian Embassy in Kabul, calling for an end to ill-treatment of Afghan refugees in the neighbouring country.

The protest began at around 10:30am from the Char Rah-i-Sadarat Square and culminated at 11:30am in front of the Iranian Embassy.

Dozens of people, who took part in the rally, said Afghan refugees in Iran had long been mistreated and their abuses continued and had increased lately.

The protestors issued a statement that said a latest video showed Iranian security officials insulting Afghan refugees and forcing them to bend their heads in respect of them.

They said the clip also showed a school in Iran, where children of Afghan refugees were shamelessly abused by their Iranian teachers.
