Taliban officials have broken up a demonstration by dozens of women in Kabul demanding rights following the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan. The group say the Taliban targeted them with tear gas and pepper spray as they tried to walk from a bridge to the presidential palace. But the Taliban maintain the protest got out of control, according Afghan media outlet Tolo news.

It's the latest of several protests by women in Kabul and Herat. The women were calling for the right to work and to be included in the government. The Taliban say they will announce the make-up of their administration in the coming days. The Taliban have said women can be involved in government, but not hold ministerial positions.

Brave women. Surely they know what they were risking.
