Coalition forces caused bloody riot in Kabul

On may 29 a road accident by coalition forces caused a bloody riot in Kabul city on Monday as known yet tens of people were killed in and more than hundred including the police forces wounded.

The riot began while a coalition force vehicle heavily loaded was cruising down from a slopping way hit the coalition vehicle then a tax, leaving one dead and six civilians wounded badly. Very soon people are gathering to witness the accident; suddenly they began throwing stones on coalition forces and police. The coalition force and police were surrounded by protestors to disperse them coalition force and police open fire on them which left more dead and wounded. A report says that the victims are exceeded from 45 people.

The angry protestor set on fire the traffic and police check points and lots of cars. They were chanting against U.S and Afghan government but holding Ahmadshah Masood picture ( a cruel and bloody-thirsty warlord in past which killed a few days before the September 11). The protestors were moving towards bank and stylish area to destroy and rob.

As i saw in west of Kabul.

A huge smoke raised from Darul Aman where the Ariana TV is located. I just decided to go there and snap. I amazed that most of the protesters were the student of Habibia High school. They had their schoolbag on their back a long stick in their hand, chanting slogan against U.S. They left the place on fire while they left i went to snap. I was taking picture while an angry police shouted over me: do you leave this place or I must shoot to you. I just had time to return my bike back. I start going to Ariana TV from streets to streets. While i reached a crowed place close to Ariana TV. The police opened fire over them just a few meters away from me there were two people fell down on the ground and never wake up. One was shot on his leg and the second was shot on his stomach. On the other side people were talking that there was more than five victims. This was the scene that i witnessed myself. I afraid of being killed by police I left the place soon.
