Around 100 people, many carrying banners emblazoned with a red heart and letters reading the Prophet Muhammad, demonstrated in the Afghan capital against the publishers of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Thursday, accusing them of blasphemy.
There have been small, sporadic protests in Afghanistan since two gunmen attacked Charlie Hebdo's office on Jan. 7 for ridiculing the prophet in the magazine's cartoons. But Thursday's rally near the French Embassy in Kabul is the believed to be the first in the capital since the shootings in Paris.
