Protesters block Kabul-Kandahar road for a 3rd day

GHAZNI CITY: Hundreds of enraged people blocked the Kabul-Kandahar highway for a third day on Monday to protest civilian deaths blamed on gunmen in uniform in southern Ghazni province.

The protest was started after two people including a child were killed by a number of armed men, who attacked a house in the Shirabad area of Qarabagh district on Friday night.

Angered by the incident, hundreds of residents of Qarabagh have kept blocked the Kabul-Kandahar highway in their area and Ghazni City since Saturday.
