Indonesian police disperse Afghan refugee demonstration

Indonesian police disperse a protest by hundreds of Afghan refugees in Jakarta on Tuesday. The refugees express fear over safety of their relatives in Afghanistan and urge the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to speed up the resettlement process so they can reunite with their family members in third countries. "The Taliban is the same as the Taliban 20 years ago. It's the same Taliban. Because their action are the same. We don't care their speech" says an Afghan refugee living in Jakarta.
