FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Afghanistan: A journey through Taliban country” – below is their description.
President Joe Biden has pledged to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan by September 11. As a result, other Western nations are also downsizing and repatriating their forces. The stage is set for a return of the Taliban, 20 years after being ousted by a US-led military coalition in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. In this report for Arte and FRANCE 24, correspondents Solène Chalvon Fioriti and Margaux Benn offer an in-depth look at Taliban-run schools and courts — and a chilling foretaste of daily life under Islamic fundamentalists.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
