Kabul In Lockdown As Hazaras Rally Over Power Line

Authorities locked down central Kabul, blocking major intersections with stacked shipping containers as the protesters sought to march on the presidential palace, waving flags and chanting slogans such as "death to discrimination".

The protest came despite calls by some Hazara leaders in the government to pursue talks with the government over the issue rather than demonstrations, which paralyse normal life in the capital.
