UN demands Taleban provide info on two more missing activists

KABUL (AFP) – The United Nations (UN) has demanded the Taleban provide information on two more women activists allegedly detained by the group this week – bringing to four the number missing in Afghanistan this year.

Since their August return to power, the Taleban have cracked down on dissent by dispersing women’s rallies, detaining critics and beating local journalists covering protests.

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) said late on Thursday it had sought “urgent information” on the detention of two more women activists by the Taleban in Kabul this week.
