taliban: US, West blast Taliban over reported ‘summary killings’ of ex-security forces

WASHINGTON: The United States on Saturday led a group of Western nations and allies in condemnation of the Taliban over the “summary killings” of former members of the Afghan security forces reported by rights groups, demanding quick investigations.
“We are deeply concerned by reports of summary killings and enforced disappearances of former members of the Afghan security forces as documented by Human Rights Watch and others,” read a statement by the United States, the European Union, Australia, Britain, Japan and others, which was released by the State Department.
The countries said the rights abuses “contradict” the amnesty for former security forces announced by the Taliban, which took power in Afghanistan in August as the US-backed government in Kabul and the country’s military collapsed.
