Taliban shoot in the air to disperse a women’s demonstration

Taliban fighters fired into the air on Saturday to disperse a demonstration of women demanding the right to work and education in the Afghan capital, Kabul. Reports from France Press agency in the region.

About 40 women chanted the slogan “bread, work and freedom” as they passed the Ministry of Education, before a group of Taliban fighters dispersed them by firing a volley in the air about five minutes after the start of the march.

The protesters carried a banner that read “August 15 is a black day,” referring to the date of the Taliban’s takeover of Kabul in 2021. “Justice, justice. We are tired of ignorance.” The women chanted, “We are tired of ignorance.”
