Village leaders threaten to protest against Taliban corruption

Village leaders across four Afghan provinces demand the return of land they say the Taliban militia seized and accountability for lost tax revenues. A local businessman told reporters, “They want to know what happened to the customs and municipality revenues since the Taliban came. The leaders have reportedly given the Taliban a 15-day ultimatum to meet their demands. The Taliban have previously been implicated in selling land with forged documents.
