    Background: More than two years after the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan, large-scale demonstrations are still being held in support of the Afghan rebels. In Paris, on Wednesday (20 January), Afghan exiles and their French sympathizers were out in force marching through the streets of the capital chanting anti-Soviet slogans. They accused the Soviet-backed Karmal government in Kabul of crimes against the Afghan people, mass persecutions and arrests, and bombardment of villages. The demonstration was organized by the Association of Afghans in France, who said that despite two years occupation by the Soviet army they still did not control the whole country. The demonstration came as French doctors in Paris accused Soviet forces of bombing French hospitals inside Afghanistan.
