Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Taliban clashes with women protesters during rally for equal rights near presidential palace in Kabul (VIDEOS)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Organizers and activists told local media that the militants blocked them from marching to the Afghan presidential palace and dispersed the rally using tear gas and batons. They said several women were detained and at least one protester was injured when a Taliban member hit her on the head.

Videos from the protest show how women started to cough and covered their mouths as they confronted armed men in military gear blocking their path. One woman was seen taking a loudspeaker away from a man who appeared to urge protesters to leave.
