Protests have erupted throughout Afghanistan since the Taliban officially claimed power in the country following the U.S. troop withdrawal, which was completed at the end of August.

The clashes have at times turned deadly, but there were no reports of violence from Tuesday's demonstrations, Reuters noted.

Last week, the Taliban said it was banning all protests and demonstrations that do not receive approval from the government, according to Axios.

The demonstrations in Afghanistan come as the insurgent group is working to form its government following the exit of the U.S. after two decades of conflict.

The insurgent group announced its interim Afghan government last week, which includes a number of hard-line leaders from its previous reign in the late 1990s, but not women.

One of the members of the government - who was named acting interior minister - is Sirajuddin Haqqani, who is on the FBI's most wanted list.
