Several killed in flag-waving protests against Taliban in Afghanistan

Moscow – Several people were killed in gunfire by the Taliban and stampede at an Independence Day rally in Afghanistan’s eastern city of Asadabad, Sputnik quoted a Reuters report on Thursday, citing a witness.

Witness Mohammed Salim told the news agency that the Taliban fired on people waving the national flag at the rally and it is unclear whether casualties actually came from the firing or from the consequent stampede.
