Afghanistan three-day ceasefire begins for Eid, amid growing demands for permanent violence halt

A three-day ceasefire is now underway in Afghanistan between government forces and the Taliban. The truce, in place to mark the Aid-el-fitr holiday, is only the fourth pause in fighting in nearly 20 years of conflict. The move was welcomed by both sides, but locals denounce its temporary effect, asking for a permanent ceasefire on social media, as bombings have killed dozens in recent days despite negotiations, as FRANCE 24’s Kabul correspondent Nanna Muus Steffensen reports.
