Afghanistan 24indianews

An explosion ripped through an area in Kabul today killing 10 people during a protest rally by Shia Hazaras. The members of minority community had gathered to protest over a key power transmission line, police said. The protesters Saturday were demanding that a major regional electric power line be routed through their impoverished home province. Eyewitness Ramin Anwari described seeing up to eight bodies in the Demazang area, where protesters were preparing to set up a camp after a four-hour march. He had no further details. One of the march organizers Laila Mohammadi said she arrived at the scene soon after the blast and saw “many dead and wounded people.” Seddiq Sediqqi, spokesman for the Ministry of Interior, says police were working to confirm initial reports of the blast.
