The Taliban held their first press conference since seizing control of Afghanistan on Tuesday. Spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said the ultraconservative insurgents would “not seek revenge” and that “everyone is forgiven.” The Taliban said women would enjoy rights within “the limits of Islam.”
The words were met with skepticism from the UN while Germany said it would judge the Taliban “by their actions” rather than their promises.
Several countries, including Germany and the United States, have continued to transport hundreds of people out of Kabul airport. Around 130 people who had been flown from Kabul to Tashkent on Tuesday arrived in the German city of Frankfurt on a commercial Lufthansa flight early on Wednesday morning.
