The Taliban have begun house-to-house hunting and killing government officials in various areas of Afghanistan. General Masoud Andarabi, Afghan Interior Minister until last March, denounced this on Sky New.uk. “The situation is chaotic. The Taliban assure that they will not persecute former government officials and that they will not retaliate, but unfortunately they have begun to do so in some areas,” said the former minister, recounting that in his hometown, Andarab, a house-by-house hunt has already begun. “Civilians are killed, they capture people and kill them – he said – so I think the situation for those who worked for the previous government is dangerous. If the Taliban continues like this, ‘pockets of resistance’ will form” across the country, He added: Andarab is the capital of the district of the same name in the north-eastern province of Baghlan and is inhabited by Afghans of Tajik ethnicity.
