Afghans have staged a rally in the eastern Parwan Province to protest against the presence of US forces in their country
The protesters on Thursday chanted anti-US slogans and called for the quick withdrawal of all US forces from Afghanistan.
The protests came after US forces wounded an Afghan civilian on Wednesday night by opening fire on his car.
The Afghan civilian had refused to stop his car despite a signal by the US forces, who were paroling the streets.

The United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan in 2001 as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror.
Although the US-led invasion removed the Taliban from power, insecurity remains rampant in the country.
The US-led combat mission in Afghanistan ended on December 31, 2014. However, at least 13,500 foreign forces, mainly from the United States, will remain in Afghanistan in what is said to be a support mission.
