Locals come to streets in Taluqan city of Takhar province Wednesday to register their protest over the alleged killing of four civilians by NATO-led troops.

Over 2,000 people staged a protest in Takhar's provincial capital Taluqan city, 245 km north of capital city Kabul, Wednesday morning alleging that NATO-led troops during a raid outside Taluqan city killed four civilians including two women.

The protesters also brought the bodies calling on government to punish those responsible for the killing of non-combatant citizens.
