Two people were reportedly killed and eight wounded by gunfire on Tuesday during a protest against the Taliban regime in a city in western Afghanistan.

A local doctor told the AFP, on condition of anonymity, the shootings happened in Herat, one of Afghanistan’s major cities.

It was one of a number of protests to take place against the new regime, which on Tuesday named its leadership for a new Afghan government, following the Taliban’s forceful takeover of the country.
