Afghan refugees held a demonstration in New Delhi on Tuesday, September 14, against the Taliban and Pakistan's interference in Afghanistan.

Afghans in different parts of the world have held protests since the Taliban entered Kabul on August 15.

On September 7 and 8, Afghans in Kabul protested against Pakistan's interference in their country's affairs -- just as ISI chief Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed was in the Afghan capital negotiating the formation of an interim government with leaders of different Taliban factions.

Both Kabul protests were crushed by the Talibs, the September 8 more brutally with two journalists being detained and beaten mercilessly.
