How Kabul became an evacuation bottleneck and a prime terror target: The Last 96
How did Kabul fall to the Taliban so quickly, and why was it the only practical way out of Afghanistan?America’s war in Afghanistan ended in calamity. Around 120,000 people were evacuated from Kabul in just a matter of days, but the herculean, if chaotic effort made the airport a prime target for a terrorist attack that killed nearly 200, including 13 U.S. service members.
But since their return to power on August 15, the Taliban showed no desire to guarantee their rights. The Islamists say that women have been ordered to stay at home for their own safety, but they will be allowed to work once an adequate segregation has been put in place.
During the first reign of the Taliban, women were largely excluded from public life. They could only leave home if they were accompanied by a chaperone.
The agents of the Ministry of Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice were known for whipping women who walked alone.
They were also responsible for strictly applying other strict interpretations of Islam, such as the obligation to attend prayers and ban for men to shave.
