[국제]Taliban whipped reporters covering women’s rights protests

Afghan journalists were dragged and whipped by the Taliban while covering a women’s rights protest.

On the 8th, the BBC reported that two reporters from the Afghan media ‘Elatros’ were captured and beaten by the Taliban while covering a women’s protest in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Reporters revealed the traces of being beaten by the Taliban on social media.

“The Taliban beat the police station with clubs, wires and whips,” one of the reporters told the BBC. The reporters were held for four hours before being released and taken to hospital.

An American journalist filming the protesters was also threatened by the Taliban. Although he was never taken to the police station for being a foreigner and beaten, it was reported that coverage was prohibited and nearly 14 journalists were arrested over the two days.

Meanwhile, Afghan women are holding a series of protests in Kabul and other places demanding that the Taliban guarantee women’s human rights. The Taliban violently suppressed them with whips and clubs, and some protesters bled.
