Protestors gather outside Iran embassy in Kabul

(MENAFN- Pajhwok Afghan News) KABUL (Pajhwok): A protest demonstration was staged in front of the Iranian Embassy in Kabul against the killing and wounding of some Afghan passengers in the neighboring country.

Three Afghans were killed and eight others injured when their vehicle caught fire in the Yazd province two days ago.

In a video message, Afghan Ambassador to Tehran Abdul GhafoorLiwal said he visited Yazd province on Friday.

The protesters belonging to the Solidarity Party chanted slogans 'Burning and drowning an unforgivable crime, we will not forgive Khamenei, Iran is the brother of Taliban and Daesh.'

They said vowed to we avenge the Afghan blood. Selai Ghafar, spokeswoman for the party, told Pajhwok Afghan News that firing on Afghan refugees and drowning of Afghan workers in the Harirod river were crimes against humanity.

She said, 'We youth of the Solidarity Party, both boys and girls, gathered in front of the Iranian 'spy house' in Kabul and painted the embassy gate with red color to express our hatred to the Iranian government.'

Also on Sunday, Kabul urged Tehran to sign a memorandum of understanding between the two countries on traffic of workers in order to prevent illegal travel and unfortunate incidents.
