Two photos are taken around the world journalists, who suffered torture in their hands Taliban, after covering a women’s protest in Kabul.
The founder and publisher of the newspaper “Etilaat Roz”, Zaki Dariabi, according to an ABC article, uploaded on social media photos with the two reporters, in which both have cable injuries on their backs, legs and arms. The two men also have bruises and cuts on their faces.
“I thought I was going to be killed,” Nemat Nakdi, 28, a journalist who suffered at the hands of the Taliban, told the New York Times. They mocked us, asked if we were filming them. “They took me to a room, tied my hands with a handkerchief and started beating me with a cable.”
Asked about the heinous incident, an unnamed incumbent Taliban minister said any attacks on journalists would be investigated.
“Five of our colleagues were detained for more than four hours and two of them were beaten and tortured with unprecedented brutality,” Dariabi told Reuters.
