Hundreds of Kabul residents protest against meddling by Pakistan in Afghanistan’s affairs

Hundreds of Kabul residents came out on the streets today in protest against what they said was meddling by Pakistan in Afghanistan’s affairs, three weeks after the Taliban’s takeover.

The Taliban fired shots into air to disperse crowd at the protest, reports various news agencies.

According to news agency TOLO reports some journalists covering the protests have been arrested.

The armed group has not yet announced a government, but the name of a lesser known Taliban leader who is in the United Nations terror watch list, Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund, is doing the rounds as a compromise candidate for the next Prime Minister of Afghanistan.

Disagreements between the terrorist group’s multiple factions have so far stymied government formation in the war-torn nation.

The main contenders for power include the Doha unit of the Taliban headed by Mullah Baradar, the Haqqani Network, a semi-independent terror outfit that operates in eastern Afghanistan, and the Kandahar faction of the Taliban.
