One Afghan killed as protesters attempt to overrun NATO base
One Afghan was killed on Friday as protesters tried to overrun a Hungarian base in northern Afghanistan, officials said.
"More than 1,000 people are protesting right now in front of a Hungarian PRT base in provincial capital Pul-e-Khumri city," said Zamanuddin Husaini, the deputy police chief of Baghlan province, DPA reported.
"The police fired into the air to disperse the crowd. Eleven people, including four police and four soldiers, were injured in the clashes," he said.
"They were able to get past the barbwire and remove the blast walls."
PRTs, Provincial Reconstruction Teams, are NATO-led joint military and civilian initiatives working in the areas of development and reconstruction.
