KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Officials say Afghan security forces have shot dead one demonstrator outside the Iranian consulate in a western city.

Abdul Hamid Hamidi, who is deputy police chief of Herat province, said a crowd of several hundred were rallying on Saturday outside the consulate in Herat city to protest its failure to grant visas.

He said security forces opened fire, killing one and wounding three. It was unclear why they fired on the group.

Some outside windows of the compound were broken and rocks apparently thrown by protesters lay near the entrance.
