We Are Questioning Some Foreigners Before They Exit The Country – Taliban

Published

Desperation deepened around Kabul’s airport on Saturday with evacuation operations in chaos and US President Joe Biden warning he could not predict the outcome of one of the “most difficult airlifts in history”.

Six days after the Taliban took back power in Afghanistan, the flow of people trying to flee continued to overwhelm Kabul.

Families hoping for a miracle escape crowded between the barbed-wire surrounds separating the Taliban from US troops and remnants of Afghan forces amid chaos and reports of violence by the group.

“Our fighters will continue to demonstrate restraint,” a Taliban official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

He ruled out incidents of reported kidnappings of foreigners, but added, “we are questioning some of them before they exit the country.”

The Taliban have denied responsibility for the disorder at Kabul airport and have said the West could have had a better plan to evacuate.

Reports of targeted killings in areas overrun by the Taliban have mounted, fuelling fears it will return the country to the repressive rule imposed when the armed group was last in power from 1996 to 2001.
