Objectivity 3.8 | Credibility 4.3 | Relevance 4.7

After seizing most of the country on the 15th of August, the Taliban has announced the new Afghan government, called the “Islamic Emirate”. This Islamic Emirate will follow international laws as long as they “are not in conflict with Islamic law and the country’s national values.” In the same statement, the Taliban announced their government’s cabinet members, and none of them were women. They also included Sirajuddin Haqqani as the interior minister. Haqqani is the head of a violent terrorist group that has been at the center of some of the most destructive terrorist attacks of the past twenty years.
