Dozens of videos have circulated this week showing the drama and chaos in Afghanistan, after the taliban will take command and after the flight of officials of the official government.
The situation in Afghanistan raises concern about the possibility of terrorist groups increasing their power, in addition to human rights violations under the new regime, although the group affirms that it will respect women “under the guidelines of Islam” and freedom of the press. .
