Some 300 Afghans including women gathered in a street close to the office of United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) Thursday and called for the trial of "war criminals".

Surrounded by police, the protesters carrying banners inscribed with slogans "We want the trial of all those involved in war crimes and human right violations" called on the government to bring criminal and corrupt elements to justice.

Before dispersing peacefully, the protesters also called on the government to identify and sack all those officials involved in human right violation and war crimes over the past three decades.

The protestors read out a resolution which stresses for initiating probe against all those individuals and government functionaries accused of involvement in war crimes and human right violation.

Coincided with the International Human Rights Day, the demonstrators also demanded the trial of criminals at authorized national and international courts.
