The Afghan president has apologised to women for remarks he made about the traditional headscarf.
On Saturday, Ashraf Ghani responded to claims that some government officials have links to so-called Islamic State. He said people should provide evidence or wear a woman’s headscarf.
It provoked a backlash from people who viewed the comments as sexist.
Mr Ghani later apologised to women who felt offended and said his comments had been misinterpreted.
