AFGHANISTAN: Afghan protestors gathered in masses to demonstrate against the Taliban in the southern city of Kandahar on Tuesday. The Afghans took to the street after they were asked to vacate a residential army colony.

Around 3,000 Afghan families were asked to leave the colony. Protestors gathered in front of the governor’s house in Kandahar. Footage from local media showed crowds of Afghans blocking a road in the city.
While the Taliban is yet to respond to the protests, the group earlier denied rumors that one of their top leaders Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar has been killed in a shootout with rivals.

The Afghanistan issue is expected to feature prominently in the upcoming Quad summit where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet with leaders of Australia, Japan, and the United States at the White House in Washington on September 24.

Meanwhile, the United Nations (UN) has also pledged more than $1.1 billion to help the Afghans. Poverty and hunger in Afghanistan have spiraled since the Taliban took power, and foreign aid has dried up.
