Demonstrations held against newspaper in Afghanistan

Despite an apology by the "Afghanistan Express" daily over a published article, hostility against the newspaper continues. IFJ said: "We believe that there are legal ways to file a case against the paper in media commission if any published contents are contrary to laws. It's undemocratic culture to demonstrate in the streets encouraging for violence against press freedom and freedom of expression."
