Two Afghan journalists who were covering a women’s protest in Kabul were severely beaten by the Taliban, according to reports.

Reporter Taqi Daryabi and photographer Nematullah Naqdi suffered bruising and welts on their backs and legs as a result of the beating.

According to the pair, the Taliban beat them with electrical cables, whips, and nations after they were detained for several hours.

Naqdi told Agence France-Presse:

“One of the Taliban put his foot on my head, crushed my face against the concrete. They kicked me in the head."

"I thought they were going to kill me."

Naqdi said the Taliban told them they were "lucky you weren’t beheaded.”

Daryabi added:

“We were in so much pain that we couldn’t move.”

Both journalists worked for Afghan outlet Etilaat Roz and were covering the protest which took place outside the Kabul police station.

The protest was calling for an end to Taliban violations of women and girls.

Last month, Neon Nettle reported on Afghan women protesting against being on the receiving end of the brutal regime.

Last month, we also reported that an Afghan woman was shot and killed for failing to wear her burqa just hours after the terrorist group promised to honor “women’s rights."

But since that promise, the Taliban have been rounding up anyone who dared to film or take photos of any protests.

The Afghan reporters were released after several hours following their beatings.

Despite the Talian promising they’ll uphold press freedoms under the new regime, they continue to persecute reporters.

Folowing the news, Joe Biden's White House said they were eternally grateful to the Taliban for being “businesslike and professional.”

National Security Council (NSC) Spokesperson Emily Horne said:

"The Taliban have been cooperative in facilitating the departure of American citizens and lawful permanent residents on charter flights from HKIA."

"They have shown flexibility, and they have been businesslike and professional in our dealings with them in this effort."

“We will continue these efforts to facilitate the safe and orderly travel of American citizens, lawful permanent residents, and Afghans who worked for us and wish to leave Afghanistan,” Horne said.
