Afghanistan: Taliban claims control of whole country

International Editor

The Taliban came into Kabul three weeks ago, but there is still no government.

The economy has juddered to a halt, nobody is getting salaries and many things have closed. People are just desperate for money and work.

There is drought, hunger, Covid and poverty, as well as all the issues with women’s rights and human rights.

The Taliban are no doubt militarily in control, but they have to address what the UN is calling a looming humanitarian catastrophe.
