Taliban Arrests 10 Journalists During Rare Women’s Protests in Kabul

Taliban fighters have arrested more than 10 journalists during women’s demonstrations in Kabul.

Sources said on Saturday (August 13th) that more than 10 journalists and their colleagues who wanted to cover the women’s protest against the Taliban in Kabul were arrested.

Tuba Walizada, a TOLO News reporter, is also among those arrested.

Foreign journalists were also present among the detained journalists.

The Taliban have released foreign journalists, but have transferred other journalists to an unknown location. The Taliban have not said anything about this news.

This morning, a number of women’s rights defenders in Kabul protested over the situation of girls’ schools, which ended after the Taliban fired in the air to disperse the protestors.
