Taliban in Afghan start confiscating weapons from civilians


The Taliban are collecting weapons and ammunition from civilians in Kabul following their swift takeover of Afghanistan.

A Taliban official told Reuters that people no longer needed weapons for personal protection because “they can now feel safe” since the insurgents have taken over. 

“We understand people kept weapons for personal safety. They can now feel safe,” the official said. 

“We are not here to harm innocent civilians.” . . .
