Afghan Pashtuns feel sidelined

Some fear lack of representation of ethnic group in parliament could strengthen Taliban ranks.

    Afghanistan's Pashtuns are not well represented in the country's new parliament.

    Some in the country fear that this might prevent them from involvement in the political process, thus strengthening the Taliban.

    Zeina Khodr spoke to residents of Ghazni, a majority Pashtun province, about their concerns.
