At least 100 people have staged a demonstration in Kabul, capital of Afghanistan, against satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo.

Two policemen and ten journalists in Paris were killed when the satirical French magazine was attacked at the beginning of January by two armed gunmen claiming allegiance to al-Qaeda.

Shortly after, the magazine published a "survivors' edition" in which it featured the Prophet Mohammed on the cover.

As Islam forbids the depiction of Mohammed, the magazine was accused by Muslims of being blasphemous to the prophet.

Protests against the magazine have been held in several countries including Niger, Somalia, Chechnya, Iran and Pakistan.

Afghan protesters marched close to the French Embassy in Kabul, AP reported. Some chanted "We love Mohammed."

Protesters demanded the French embassy be closed and its diplomats leave the country.
