Dozens of women in Taliban ruled Afghanistan have taken to the streets to protest against the formation of an all-male interim Taliban government which was announced on Tuesday.

Demonstrators said they would not accept a government with no women ministers.

However, things took a dramatic turn during the protest. According to reports, some women were severely beaten before the protests were dispersed.

Local media also said some of its journalists were detained and beaten for covering the rally.

Meanwhile, The Talibans are yet to respond to the allegations, but they have warned  that such protests were illegal.

They have said protesters needed permission to march, and should not use what they called abusive language during demonstration.
