According to officials, the Taliban is in the midst of a manhunt in Kabul, searching for journalists or others with ties to Afghanistan’s previous government. Apparently, this led to the killing of a reporter’s family member. The militant group had previously promised not to engage in such behavior.
Officials with Deutsche Welle, a broadcaster in Germany, said that some of their other reporters have also had their homes raided since the takeover.
“We expect both individuals previously working with NATO and U.S. forces and their allies, alongside with their family members to be exposed to torture and executions,” said Chrisitan Nellemann, who is the RHIPTO Norwegian Center for Global Analyses chief.
