Hundreds of angry protesters in Afghanistan’s Ghazni Province blocked roads and clashed with police today in protest over a reported incident in which Polish soldiers fired on a village mosque.
The Polish Defense Ministry denied any knowledge of any sort of incident involving their soldiers in Afghanistan. Afghan officials said the door of the mosque had been damaged by bullets, and protesters reported having witnessed the Polish forces raiding the mosque. Others reported that a Qu’ran in the building was damaged.
Afghan officials have met with the Polish forces regarding the incident, which does not appear to have injured anyone. Ghazni has been tense since an incident late last month in which US forces killed at least two civilians in a raid.
