Protesters in the Afghan capital of Kabul issued a series of demands to the government following the beheadings of members of an ethnic minority group by suspected ISIL militants, local media reported Wednesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Thousands rallied in the streets of Kabul over the beheading of seven abducted members of the Hazara minority, attributed to the Islamic State jihadist group.

Violence broke out when police fired warning shots to fend off protesters attempting to scale walls near the presidential palace.

"The protesters said they took to the streets on Wednesday to condemn the beheading of seven hostages, including a girl and two women, who were kidnapped last month," the TOLOnews broadcaster cited the rally organizers as saying.

Seven victims were abducted over a month ago in the central-east Afghan city of Ghazni and found later in the nearby province of Zabul.

Organizers of the march reportedly met with government officials in the presidential palace after reading out their demands in central Kabul.

The demands included punishing the perpetrators, establishing Hazara security units within the Afghan Army, forming an independent administrative office in Ghazni and the Jaghori district, and increasing police numbers in areas where the Taliban militant group is active.
