Afghans in Kabul protest woman's execution               
Demonstrators march for gender rights and against shooting carried out in Parwan last week and captured in video clip.

Scores of men and women have taken to the streets of Kabul to protest the recent public slaying of an Afghan woman whose gruesome, execution-style killing was captured on video.
The crowd of demonstrators carried large white sheets on Wednesday that said "International community: Where is the protection and justice for Afghan women?"
They marched from the Afghan Ministry of Women's Affairs to a traffic circle near a UN compound, and some shouted: "Death to those who did this act!"
"We want the government to take action on behalf of these women ... who are victims of violence and who are being killed," said Zuhra Alamyar, a woman activist who was at the Kabul rally. "We want the government to take serious action and stop them."
The video footage, which surfaced recently, shows the woman being shot multiple times about 10 days ago in Parwan province, north of the Afghan capital.
The gunman was encouraged by people who stood nearby, smiling and cheering.
Police in Parwan said the Taliban were behind the killing, but the group have denied they ordered or carried out the slaying.
Process of reform
The death of the woman, who was said to be in her 20s, set off a storm of condemnation. President Hamid Karzai, the US embassy, the top NATO military commander in Afghanistan and activist groups all denounced the killing.
It was a reminder that girls and women still suffer shocking abuse in Afghanistan, but the protest also indicated that people's views on women's rights there could be slowly changing.
Wazhma Frogh, executive director of the Research Institute for Women, Peace and Security, told Al Jazeera that organisers counted more than 300 people at the rally, of whom at least 85 were men.
Frogh said she travelled to Parwan, where the execution took place, and saw women experiencing a renewed sense of fear.
"But this event was nothing new for us," Frogh said. "When we first saw the reports, we flashed back to the stoning of a couple in Kunduz last year and the stoning of a woman in 1998."
"The truth is though, every day we are under threat. If we stay at home we are under threat. If we go to school we are under threat."
Despite guaranteed rights and progressive new laws, the UN Development Programme still ranks Afghanistan as one of the world's worst countries when it comes to equal rights for women.
Afghan advocates say attitudes have subtly shifted over the years, in part thanks to the dozens of women's groups that have sprung up.
'Face justice'
Still, ending abuse of women is a huge challenge in a patriarchal society where traditional practices include child marriage, giving girls away to settle debts or pay for their relatives' crimes and honour killings in which girls seen as disgracing their families are murdered by relatives.
Women activists worry that gains made in recent years could erode as the international presence in Afghanistan wanes and the government seeks to negotiate a settlement with the Taliban fighters.
During the Taliban regime, women were banned from working and going to school, or even leaving home without a male relative. In public, all women were forced to wear a head-to-toe burqa veil, which covers even the face with a mesh panel.
The video surfaced just before donor nations met over the weekend in Tokyo and pledged $16bn in aid for Afghanistan.
The donors expressed strong concerns over how the money would be handled and also called on Kabul to improve human rights, especially women's rights.
"We want from the government to follow the killing of the women in Afghanistan and hand over those responsible to face justice," said Afghan activist Sima Samar from the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission.

So everything that shows muslims in a poor light is faked?

Details

Do you have details of who was killed,who did the shooting and who filmed the alleged event ? Surely someone with a camcorder could have called in some portion of the vast NWO military now butchering Afghans all across that unfortunate country ? And aren't you aware that 9/11&7/7 and most of the other false flag black ops were inside jobs ?
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

ladies and gentlemen,
dont waste your time on such videos, as these are games played by intelligences agencies.

i totally condem this act, but we dont know the whole story.
and what about the killings of palestinens by isralies?
iraqi and afghanis by USA?

mostly childrens die in USA air attacks in afghanistan.
so why you call that right?

just close your eyes on these topics and watch some funny videos as these are played by high ranke and well organised agencies to get their results.
