KABUL - Around 150 Afghans took to the streets in the capital Kabul on Saturday, chanting "death to Pakistan" in protest against weeks of cross-border shelling of two eastern provinces.

The bombardment has strained ties between the neighbors, and on Friday General Aminullah Amarkhil, the top Afghan regional border police commander offered to resign over the government's response, saying he could not stand by as civilians were killed.

Amarkhil said two weeks ago that 12 civilians had been killed by the shells, and many others wounded. The Afghan foreign ministry said in late June that four children had been killed.
