Afghan security forces yet again demonstrate a chilling disregard for human life
Opening fire on a tent full of demonstrators, the Afghan security forces have demonstrated a chilling disregard for human life. The protestors, who were fired upon on the night of 19 June 2017, had been peacefully protesting against the deterioration of security in the country and the relentless loss of civilian lives since the worst attack on civilians in 15 years struck the capital Kabul on 31 May, killing at least 150 people and wounding hundreds.
