KABUL: A group of Afghan citizens created uproar outside the Pakistan High Commission in Kabul on Sunday over not being granted visas to visit Pakistan, Express News reported.
Gathered in protest outside the embassy in the Afghan capital, citizens demanded the ‘immediate’ issuance of visas to Pakistan.
