Afghans protest unfreezing funds for 9/11 victims

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – Demonstrators in Afghanistan’s capital on Saturday condemned United States (US) President Joe Biden’s order freeing up USD3.5 billion in Afghan assets held in the US for families of America’s 9/11 victims – saying the money belongs to Afghans.

Protesters who gathered outside Kabul’s grand Eid Gah mosque asked America for financial compensation for the tens of thousands of Afghans killed during the last 20 years of war in Afghanistan.
