In Afghanistan, the threat to the lives of journalists was announced

Afghanistan's Committee to Protect Journalists said the lives of local media workers were at risk. According to TASS, referring not to The Khaama Press, the organization warned of the danger for journalists and called on the United States to ensure the protection of their lives.

“With the Taliban ( banned in Russia ) controlling almost 100% of Afghanistan, the Committee to Protect Journalists expresses concern about the safety of Afghan media workers, both men and women, and calls on the United States to ensure their lives are protected. “, The committee said in a statement.

Representatives of the organization also said that the United States has a special responsibility for the lives of Afghan journalists and called on the administration of US President Joe Biden to do everything possible to protect them.

On Sunday, August 15, the radical Taliban announced that Afghanistan was completely under its control. In a few weeks, the militants managed to subdue most of the country and all the largest cities. The administration of the country has been transferred to a temporary council, which will eventually transfer power to the Taliban. It includes the head of the Supreme Council for National Reconciliation Abdullah Abdullah and former President Hamid Karzai. President Ashraf Ghani left the country.

After the seizure of the country, local TV channels were forced to change their broadcasting schedule. Most of the channels previously broadcasting daytime entertainment have switched to broadcasting Quranic readings or news of Taliban activities.
