CJSOTF reports demonstration IVO GARDEZ. Initially approximately 60X demonstrators gathered for a protest where 1X demonstrator was shot in leg and transported to Gardez hospital. The ANP is dealing with demonstration. Earlier that morning CJSOTF facilitated the establishment of the Emergency Operation Center (EOC) at the local government compound. The EOC is maintaining communication with Police/Government/CF. The UNAMA compound is secured by elements of TF Thunder. At 1005Z CJSOTF reported a second group of approximately 300 locals has linked-up with first group. Demonstrators appear to be taking some direction from the police. Group is moving north toward Tera Pass (CNA). CJSOTF recommends all CF units stay off roads between Tera Pass and Gardez. At 1007Z a large group of demonstrators (over 100) began to move toward FB Gardez (42s wc 20598 17955). At 1053Z the crowd was 50M from north check point throwing rocks and a second group is 300M away and moving toward the check point. During the incident, the police shot five people. One died at the hospital and four are in stable condition. The police verified that the individual who died was a spectator and not a demonstrator and that he was shot unintentionally. At least two of the other four were shot for attempting to wrestle weapons away from the police. It was not verified that the demonstrators were armed with anything more than slingshots.
