Kabul women protest as new Taliban government looms

The group of protesters, who also marched through the streets, held up signs and chanted, "We Afghan women are all together."

Taliban co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar will lead a new Afghan government which is set to be announced soon, sources in the group said on Friday (September 3).

The Taliban enforced a radical form of sharia, or Islamic law, in particular oppressing women, when it ruled in 1996-2001.

Although the movement has tried to present a more conciliatory face to the world in recent weeks, many Afghans and the West have cast doubt on the assurances.
