Young Afghans gather for meeting in Kabul to demand peace

Young Afghan men and women - who can often feel disenfranchised from the country's legislature - have been gathering in Kabul for a conference organised by the National Youth Jirga.

Subjects up for discussion include how to bring about peace in the country as well as ways to improve education and unemployment.

Karen Zarindast reports.
