Well bill over the past few days we've had relatively small and peaceful and control protest not only Kabul and across that yes and it really changed today today's protest.
It was really more of a right several hundred Afghans took to the streets not too far from the US embassy -- than me but there's several US aces.
They're throwing rocks burning tires -- a lot of destruction along the way.
45 Afghan police officers -- -- -- were injured as part of this sort of riot.
But it did have the relative importance -- protest physically as opposed to a genuine outpouring of anger over this anti Islamic film.
Need any of the protesters and writers today.
We're young boys 8910 years old and teenage boys this really -- feel like game mass protest but instead something that was sort of whipped up.
To create an anti American anger here in Afghanistan -- well for Americans were killed over the weekend what is considered an insider attack.
What is the level of concern about this -- Well over the weekend had not only for Americans and two British soldiers were killed this is the biggest problem right now -- US military in large part because.
Building up the Afghan security forces is the her first priority here.
They're turning their weapons on their US and international -- there's at an alarming rate and it really is undermining the trust today however I have to say -- get security forces.
Reportedly performed very well here in Kabul they took to the streets they were organized they didn't fire on the protesters so there are some bright spots among the Afghan security forces but there are some real problems particularly -- insider attacks that are attacking US and international troops bill.
