Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Bonus Edition: Afghanistan special | The Stream” – below is their description.

This week on The Stream, we look back at some of our coverage of Afghanistan – from 2019 to the Taliban takeover this week. From two years ago, a conversation about women’s rights and the #AfghanWomenWillNotGoBack movement. In April, we asked whether the US was abandoning Afghan workers, and heard from guests who were early to sound the alarm. And a special behind-the-scenes moment from this week’s look at the next chapter of Afghanistan.
