Taliban Interrogate Pupils in Khairkhana Area, North of Kabul

Taliban fighters have raided schools in northern Kabul and interrogated students in grades one to three.

The Taliban have raided a number of schools in the Khairkhana area of Kabul and interrogated students about their families.

The Taliban have raided schools in Kabul’s Khairkhana district on Sunday, questioning first- to third-grade students about their father’s job, father’s position, the main residence and family members.

The National Resistance Front (NRF) has said that interrogating children for war purposes violates international humanitarian law.

The interrogation comes as the Taliban have recently arrested dozens of people on charges of collaborating with the NRF.
