At least five people have been killed in violent protests in the Afghan town of Taloqan, in the northern province of Takhar, officials said. The provincial governor's spokesman told Al Jazeera that thirty were also wounded in demonstrations on Wednesday, against the killing of two men and two women by ISAF forces in a night-time raid. A crowd of angry demonstrators armed with spades and axes took to the streets of Taloqan in protest, chanting "death to America", and "death to Karzai", and tried to storm a foreign military base nearby. Police and Afghan security guards opened fire to disperse the crowd, which Takhar provincial police chief Noori estimated at 3,000 people, after the violence mounted. "There is no more room in the hospital, it is already packed with wounded," Hassan Baseej, head of the provincial hospital, told Reuters news agency.
