Kabul demo targets occupation

Issue No. 2218

Around 500 protesters took to the streets of Kabul last Monday to demand an end to the US occupation.

The protest was sparked by a right wing church in the US announcing plans to burn copies of the Quran on the anniversary of 9/11.

The protesters chanted “long live Islam” and “death to America”.

MPs, councillors and clerics spoke at the rally.
