Samira, 9, and other children share tea and bread for breakfast at the orphanage before going to school in Kabul, Afghanistan, October 12, 2021. "Children are going to die. "I don't know how you don't have millions of people, and especially children, dying at the rate we are going with the lack of funding and the collapsing of the economy." He said dollars earmarked for development assistance should be repurposed for humanitarian aid, which some nations have already done, or frozen funds be channelled through the agency. The U.N. food agency needs up to $220 million a month to partially feed the nearly 23 million vulnerable people as winter nears.

Hafizi was on the run for seven weeks with her journalist husband and their two children, moving between four cities before being evacuated to Greece with 25 more women judges and lawyers and their families. "I would ask the international community to not recognise the Taliban," Hafizi said.

Tens of thousands of Afghans have arrived in the United States as part of an American evacuation. President Joe Biden's administration is working to accommodate as many as 50,000 refugees in the United States. Sarah Krause, executive director of the Community Sponsorship Hub, said the sponsorship program will help create enduring bonds between the Afghans and the communities that sponsor them. Some refugee organizations have been pushing for the United States to adopt a program of private or community sponsorship for individual refugees, similar to a model used in Canada. Last month, former U.S. Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama helped launch a new group, Welcome.US, aimed at supporting the Afghan refugees.

More than half of Afghanistan's population will have trouble finding food this winter. Cold winter months present tremendous food accessibility issues around the country. Humanitarian aid officials are highlighting the country's crippling economic crisis amid the Taliban takeover as a main catalyst in the looming food shortage. Even before the collapse of the Afghan government over the summer, the country was battling the COVID-19 pandemic and severe droughts, according to the World Food Programme. As the winter months approach, harsh conditions present a massive accessibility challenge for Afghans in desperate need of food, the UN's food assistance agency said.

KABUL, Oct 25 (Reuters) - Taliban officials took to social media on Monday to congratulate the Afghan national cricket team for winning a match in the Twenty20 World Cup, but there was a muted response on the streets of Kabul where such wins were celebrated enthusiastically in the past. While the Taliban frown on many forms of public entertainment, cricket has always been an exception, a game fighters followed closely even during the war whenever the national team was playing. "Afghanistan won," the younger Haqqani said. Despite years of violence and upheaval, Afghanistan has an enthusiastic and widespread following of cricket and residents of Kabul were eagerly anticipating the cricket world cup matches. read moreThe governing International Cricket Council (ICC) will meet next month to determine the game's future in Afghanistan under the Taliban regime.

REUTERS/Jorge SilvaDUBAI, Oct 23 (Reuters) - Afghanistan is heading towards economic collapse that risks spiralling the country into a new political crisis, Sweden's minister for international development cooperation warned on Saturday. The Red Cross on Friday urged the international community to engage with the Taliban, warning that aid groups on their own could only provide temporary solutions. The movement has faced international criticism for its failure to uphold certain rights since returning to power, including allowing girls access to education. European countries were not ready to reopen their Kabul embassies, Fridh said, adding that more diplomatic missions would open in Qatar before there is a return to Afghanistan.

Hussain had just arrived at his office in Afghanistan’s capital when the world seemed to explode around him. Hussain suffered head and leg wounds in the blast, one of the largest in two decades of war, and was in constant anguish during months of surgery. The still-lingering pain was made more acute this past week when Hussain watched the new acting minister of interior — Sirajuddin Haqqani, the leader of the very group accused of carrying out the attack — honoring the people who had consigned him to a life of agony: the Taliban’s ranks of suicide bombers. “Instead of asking for forgiveness, they are commemorating the suicide bombers,” said Hussain, who asked to be identified by first name only out of fear of retribution from the Taliban. “And I will never forgive.”

Email address By clicking ‘Sign up’, you agree to receive marketing emails from Insider as well as other partner offers and accept our Terms of Service and Privacy PolicyRussian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday said that President Joe Biden was right to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan, Reuters reported. Though Putin apparently approves of Biden's decision to pull all US troops from Afghanistan, the president has faced fierce, bipartisan criticism in Washington over his handling of the withdraw. Last month, Putin said the US achieved "zero" via the war in Afghanistan and that the conflict resulted in "only tragedies." Putin and Biden met in Geneva, Switzerland, in June to address the contentious dynamic.

KABUL—Mawlawi Zubair Mutmaeen used to run Taliban suicide-bombing squads in Kabul. On a recent day, in his new role as police chief for one of the Afghan capital’s districts, he was busy mediating a marital dispute. A woman clad in a burqa complained she could no longer live with her interfering mother-in-law. Clearly used to being in command, Mr. Mutmaeen lectured the husband that under Islamic law he must provide his wife with “shelter and other basic necessities.”

MOSCOW—Russia has a fine line to tread when it hosts a Taliban delegation at international talks in Moscow on Wednesday: staying on good terms with the new regime in Kabul while preventing an influx of refugees and a broader Islamist movement gaining ground in what used to be the Soviet Union. From Eastern Europe to the Central Asian republics to its south, Russia has long tried to exert its influence over the former Soviet space.

REUTERS/Mohammad IsmailKABUL, Oct 20 (Reuters) - The Taliban praised suicide bombers who died during the war against the former government and its Western allies and offered their families sums of cash and promises of land, the movement's interior ministry said in a statement. Sirajuddin Haqqani, the acting interior ministry who has a $10 million U.S. bounty on his head as a "specially designated global terrorist", met the families at a ceremony at the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul, which was itself targeted by suicide bombers in 2018. Families of the suicide bombers were given clothing, 10,000 afghani ($111) and promised plots of land, spokesman Qari Sayeed Khosti said. He is wanted for questioning by the FBI in connection with an attack on another hotel in Kabul in 2008 in which six people including an American citizen were killed.

Taliban fighters are now getting used to new artificial limbs alongside soldiers of the army they fought to defeat. Standing near him at a Kabul clinic is one of the soldiers he defeated. That rebellion turned to conquest in August when the hardline Islamist militants advanced on Kabul and seized the capital. Unlike many Afghan women forced from their jobs since the Taliban returned to power, she has been allowed to carry on. But there has been no victory to ease the suffering of defeated soldiers from the ousted administration, some of whose leaders fled when the Taliban approached Kabul and left the city to its fate.

Alexander Zemlianichenko/Pool via REUTERSMOSCOW, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Russia called on Wednesday for a mobilisation of international aid to support Afghanistan, as Moscow hosted the Taliban for an international conference while regretting a U.S. decision to stay away. Russia's initiative in hosting the talks and rallying aid for Afghanistan is part of an effort to boost its influence in the region after the United States withdrew its forces from Afghanistan and the Taliban seized power in August. Lavrov said he regretted the absence of the United States from the talks. Russia fought its own war in Afghanistan in the 1980s and has close military and political ties with former Soviet Central Asian states that border Afghanistan.

The Taliban is rewarding the families of those who attacked US troops from 2001 to 2021. The families were given money and clothes, and promised a plot of land each, the official said. Haqqani also distributed 10,000 afghanis ($112) per family, gave them clothes, and promised them a plot of land each, Kohsty said. Earlier this month, the Taliban held talks with President Joe Biden's administration for the first time since the US withdrawal in August. It is unclear how many US and Afghan soldiers died from suicide attacks in Afghanistan in the last 20 years.

Russian presidential envoy to Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov shakes hands with a representative of the Taliban delegation Mawlawi Shahabuddin Dilawar before the beginning of international talks on Afghanistan in Moscow, Russia, October 20, 2021. Russia has led the calls for international aid, conscious that any spillover of conflict from Afghanistan could threaten regional stability. Abdul Salam Hanafi, the deputy prime minister who led the delegation, said: "Isolating Afghanistan is in no one's interests." Its main fear is the risk of instability in Central Asia, and possible migrant flows and Islamist militant activity directed from Afghanistan. As well as saying no militant groups will be able to operate from Afghanistan, the Taliban have said they will safeguard the rights of women and minorities.

The US Treasury is holding firm on its freeze of Afghan central bank reserves, according to Reuters. Since August, the Taliban have tried to access close to $9.5 billion in assets located abroad. Deputy US Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo said that sanctions and humanitarian aid would continue. "We believe that it's essential that we maintain our sanctions against the Taliban but at the same time find ways for legitimate humanitarian assistance to get to the Afghan people. The Taliban has been unable to get its hands on the Afghan central bank's almost $10 billion in reserves, Insider previously reported.

His defenders have argued the envoy was handed an impossible task, given the tight deadline set by the Trump administration for the United States' withdrawal from Afghanistan. The talks ended with America's hasty and chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan in August and the Taliban's takeover of the country. Instead, his letter amounted to a defense of the 2020 Doha agreement that opened the way for the withdrawal of U.S. troops. But critics accused the Trump administration of negotiating a “surrender agreement” with the Taliban and have blasted the Biden administration for going ahead with the deal. This comes as the State Department's inspector general informed Congress on Monday that her office would be launching a series of investigations into the Biden administration's Afghanistan withdrawal.

Afghanistan's gross domestic product could see a contraction of up to 30% following the Taliban takeover, the IMF said in its latest regional economic report. Jihad Azour, director of the IMF's Middle East and Central Asia department, said the country's situation was deteriorating, even before Kabul fell. The report also noted that non-humanitarian aid has been halted, foreign assets mostly frozen and Afghan banks have been crippled by cash shortages after the Taliban returned to power. "These shocks could cause a 20–30 percent output contraction, with falling imports, a depreciating Afghani, and accelerating inflation," the report said. "The resulting drop in living standards threatens to push millions into poverty and could lead to a humanitarian crisis."

In an effort to eradicate polio and boost health measures for children in Afghanistan, the Taliban government has agreed to restart a door-to-door vaccination program next month, and will allow women to be frontline workers in the drive, health officials announced on Tuesday. The five-day nationwide program to distribute the polio vaccine, which is given orally and in multiple doses, will begin Nov. 8, according to officials. The drive aims to reach about 10 million children, according to Dr. Hamid Jafari, head of polio eradication for the W.H.O.’s eastern Mediterranean region. More than 3.3 million children had previously “remained inaccessible to vaccination campaigns,” according to the statement announcing the drive. Children who are 6 months to 59 months old will also be given vitamin A supplements during the campaign, officials said.
