Oyogist has learned that a news reporter Afghaistan Identified as Ziar Khan Yaad was allegedly attacked by Taliban forces after heading out to film a news report on the nation’s struggling economy in the wake of the Taliban takeover 12 days ago.

With his cameraman in tow, Yaad headed to the Haji Yaqub Mosque in the capital, Kabul, where dozens of daily-wage workers line up every day to procure construction, painting and other manual labouring jobs.

Yaad had just started his on-camera interview when an armoured white Land Cruiser pulled up to the side of the road and men started storming towards them.

Suddenly, the men, who “Claimed” to be Taliban, confiscated their phones, camera, microphones and other equipment, while others started beating the two media workers.

“We’re journalists,” they said, struggling to take out their media cards. Yaad says when the Taliban saw their media cards, they started to insult both men. “You ingrate journalists!”As quickly as they arrived, the supposed Taliban members disappeared into Kabul’s streets.
