    The killing of civilians by coalition forces has prompted anti-US rallies across Afghanistan.
    Hundreds of Afghans have taken to the streets in the southwestern Helmand province to voice their anger at the killing of a 65-year-old man by US troops.

    The demonstrators gathered outside the governor’s office, carrying his body on Thursday.

    They called for the prosecution of those responsible for the killing.

    Another demonstration was held in the southern Oruzgan province over the desecration of Islam’s holy book, the Quran.

    That protest came in response to reports that US-led forces tore up a Quran in an attack on people’s homes.

    US-led forces in Afghanistan regularly launch attacks on alleged militant hideouts, but the strikes usually result in civilian casualties.

    Civilians have been the main victims of violence in Afghanistan, particularly in the country’s troubled southern and eastern provinces, where they fall victim to both militant and foreign fire.

    The demonstrators demanded the immediate withdrawal of all foreign troops from their country.
