Najibullah's government collapsed after a civil war led by Mujahedeen groups who have now been swept a...
While in power in Afghanistan, the Taliban became notorious internationally for their discrimination against women due to religious beliefs. But that was not always the case with Afghan women.

Colonel Abdul Fatah runs Kabul's busiest passport office. And he has earned a reputation - and many certificates from leaders and organizations—because he was overheard declaring to his employees that he would not tolerate corruption. But for him, it's not about awards, it's about properly getting the job done.
