The United Nations says the first four months of Taliban rule in Afghanistan have been marked by “credible allegations” of more than 100 extrajudicial killings, the denial of women’s rights, and the recruitment of boys to be soldiers.

Addressing the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on December 14, Nada al-Nashif, the world body’s deputy rights chief, said she was deeply alarmed by continuing reports of such killings despite a general amnesty announced by Afghanistan’s new rulers.

“Between August and November, we received credible allegations of more than 100 killings of former Afghan national security forces and others associated with the former government,” said Nashif, the UN deputy high commissioner for human rights, adding that “at least 72 of these killings” were attributed to the Taliban.

“In several cases, the bodies were publicly displayed. This has exacerbated fear among this sizeable category of the population,” she added.
