On Friday, following a deadly attack in a diplomatic area in Kabul which killed nearly 100 people and injured over 400 others, thousands of Afghans staged a protest at the site of the incident and asked the government leaders to resign.

At least seven protesters were killed and at least 20 injured after police opened fire at the demonstrators.
