About 1,000 Afghans took to the streets in a southern town on Thursday to protest against the mass killing of 16 civilians in a rampage by a US soldier, police said.

Shouting anti-American slogans the demonstrators poured into the main town of Qalat in Zabul province neighbouring Kandahar, where the shooting spree took place on Sunday, regional police spokesman Hekmatullah Kochai told AFP.

The protest came with US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta due to hold talks with Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Kabul aimed at calming troubled ties.
