A group of 20 women staged protest in Kabul to demand their rights of education and work.
The Taliban forces uses pepper spray to disperse the protestors.
The women protestors had gathered in front of Kabul University, chanted “equality and justice” and carried banners that read “Women’s rights, human rights”.
“When we were near Kabul University three Taliban vehicles came, and fighters from one of the vehicles used pepper spray on us,” said a protester, who asked not to be named for security reasons.
“My right eye started to burn. I told one of them ‘shame on you’, and then he pointed his gun at me.”
Two other protesters said that one of the women had to be taken to hospital after the spray caused an allergic reaction to her eyes and face.
Some eyewitnesses saw a Taliban fighter confiscate a mobile phone of a man who was filming the demonstration.
