About 150 Indian citizens have been kidnapped near the Kabul airport. About it informs Interfax citing Afghan media.
This information is given with reference to the Afghan staff of the Indian Embassy in Kabul. There is no official confirmation of this yet.
On the eve of Amnesty International reportedthat the Taliban are killing ethnic minorities in Afghanistan.
As the organization learned, from 4 to 6 July, the Taliban shot six men in the village of Mundaraht in the Malistan region near Kabul, tortured three to death, and strangled another with a scarf (previously, they cut off the muscles from his arm). After fighting broke out in Ghazni province, several local residents fled the village to seek refuge in the mountains. The next day, some of them returned to stock up on food, but found that the Taliban had robbed their homes.
Amnesty representatives indicated that the acts described by eyewitnesses can only partially describe the real picture in Afghanistan. The Taliban are blocking internet and mobile communications in some areas to control the spread of information. “The cold-blooded brutality of these killings is a reminder of the Taliban’s past and a terrifying demonstration of what its rule in Afghanistan can bring,” said Amnesty Secretary General Agnes Callamar.
Let us remind you that last Sunday, August 15, Taliban terrorists seized Kabul and declared control over the whole of Afghanistan. President Ashraf Ghani responded by resigning and leaving for the UAE. Ordinary Afghans also began to flee the country occupied by the Taliban: a stampede began at the Kabul airport because of this, in which perished at least 12 people.
After the Taliban seized power announced on a general amnesty for government officials. By data UN militants have compiled lists of those who have collaborated with NATO, the United States and Great Britain. In Afghanistan, they face execution. On the eve of the Taliban killed a relative of a Deutsche Welle employee. In addition, the militants opened fire on protesters in the city of Asadabad. According to eyewitnesses, several people were killed and injured as a result of the stampede and gunfire.
