Kabul protesters run for cover as Taliban fire in air
VIDEO SHOWS: TALIBAN FIRE IN THE AIR TO DISPERSE PROTESTERS / ANTI-PAKISTAN PROTESTS IN KABUL / COMMENTS FROM PROTESTERS
Taliban gunmen fired in the air to disperse anti-Pakistan protesters in Kabul on Tuesday (September 7), witnesses said.
Scores of people were seen running for cover as volleys of gunfire could be heard.
There were no immediate reports of injuries.
Pakistan’s spy chief Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed flew into Kabul on Saturday (September 4).
It was not clear what his agenda was, but a senior official in Pakistan said earlier in the week that Hameed, who heads the powerful Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, could help the Taliban reorganise the Afghan military.
Washington has accused Pakistan and the ISI of backing the Taliban in the group’s two-decade fight against the U.S.-backed government in Kabul, although Islamabad has denied the charges.
