Afghan Authorities cordon off Kabul after agitation through Afghanistan

Kabul :  Due to massive bomb blast in Kabul during this weekend , agitation arose in different streets. An enormous bomb blast in Afghanistan capital during this weekend took the precious lives of countless people.

More than 80 innocent people were brutally killed in this blast. After that protests in different cities of Afghanistan started. A wave of turbulence was created in Kabul . Police used force to stop these protests. Meanwhile several protesters fight with security forces. Police used tear gas to  disperse the mob.

Although Saturday is a normal working day in Afghanistan, large parts of the city were cordoned  off, with armed checkpoints set up and armored vehicles patrolling the streets.

This atmosphere of uproar has deteriorated the circumstances in country. Ashraf Ghani was already in bitter condition because he was facing massive criticism from public on government’s failure.

Wednesday’s truck bomb, which killed more than 80 people and wounded some 460, was one of the worst since the US-led campaign to oust the Taliban in 2001 but in other respects it scarcely differed from a long series of previous attacks.

In the first three months of the year at least 715 civilians sacrificed their lives, after almost 3,500 in 2016, the deadliest year on record for Afghan civilians.
