Tens of thousands of ethnic minority Hazaras, protesting the rerouting of a power line, were blocked in their attempt to march to the presidential palace in Kabul Monday. Leaders of Monday's demonstration have called the routing of the line through the mountainous Salang pass north of Kabul and away from their territory in Bamiyan evidence of enduring bias against the Hazara.
