Afghanistan

Derechos
Espanol

As the war between the Taliban and the opposition United Front continues, peace seems ever more remote. Human rights violations are widespread and systematic. Thousands of people are arbitrarily arrested, most tortured or ill-treated. Thousands more have been systematically killed or disappeared. The Taliban continue to push their extremist version of Islamic law on the population, leaving thousands of women virtual prisoners in their homes. Amputations, executions and floggings have been recorded against purported "criminals".
