Hundreds of people protest over killing of civilian by NATO troops in
BAGHLAN, Afghanistan: Hundreds of people came to the streets of
Baghlan-e-Jadid district on Saturday and denounced what they described the
arbitrary killing and arresting civilians by NATO-led troops. "Some 900 to
1,000 people came to the streets today to express their protest over killing
one person and arresting two others in Baghlan-e-Jadid district last night,"
deputy to provincial council Assadullah Shahbaz told Xinhua.
The protestors said that the NATO troops raided a house Friday night,
killing a civilian and taking away two others.
Chanting anti-government and anti-NATO slogans, the protestors warned to
hold demonstrations in the future if killing civilians is not investigated.
Meantime, an official, Abdul Rasoul, rejected the claim, saying one of the
arrested persons is a Taliban commander.
However, police said investigation is underway to find the facts.
