Taliban fire tear gas against Afghan women protestors

The Taliban used force against Afghan women who once again took to the streets of Kabul to protest violations of their rights and a set of regulations imposed on them, reported Sputnik citing a protester. We came out for women's rights. We protested peacefully, said the protester, adding, The Taliban harassed me.

It came after the Taliban's Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice last week issued posters in Kabul ordering Afghan women to cover up. The ministry had also prohibited women from travelling without having their faces covered in public transport. The new rulers in Kabul had also banned women from appearing in media and attending educational institutions without conforming attire, said Sputnik.
