Afghan madrassa raid sparks clashes

Several police and civilians injured in protest against foreign troops in Kabul.

    Clashes broke out on the outskirts of Kabul, the Afghan capital, leaving several police officers and civilians injured.

    The protest against Nato forces in Afghanistan was prompted by a raid on a religious school, or madrassa, on Monday night.

    Government officials said they arrested at least three suspects including the imam from the religious school.

    Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reported from Kabul.
