Hundreds of people protested in the southern Kandahar province on Tuesday (September 14), against what they say are Taliban orders for citizens to leave their homes within 3 days.

Protesters said the Taliban used loudspeakers in “Firqa Kohna” to order them to evacuate their houses.
Protesters marched in front of the governor’s office in the city after 3,500 people living in a government-owned residential area were given three days to leave.

Protesters claim the Taliban have forced about 3,000 families to leave their houses on the outskirts of Kandahar. Most of the protesters were women.
Protesters in Kandahar requested the Taliban to allow them to stay in their homes.
According to reports, the Taliban have stopped and beat journalists, trying to cover the protests.
