Afghan police fire at anti-US rallies; 7 killed
Afghan officials say at least seven people have been killed after police opened fire to disperse thousands of anti-American demonstrators rioting for a second day over what the U.S. has said was the inadvertent burning of Muslim holy books at a NATO military base.
Officials says the deaths occurred yesterday in the Afghan capital and in the eastern provinces of Logar and Parwan.
The Health Ministry confirmed the death in Kabul, while the Logar provincial police chief and hospital director of Parwan’s main hospital confirmed the others. In total, the three men and other officials said more than 30 people had been wounded in various protests.
