The United States has said it is concerned after the Taliban unveiled Afghanistan’s new all-male government with figures linked to attacks on American forces. The US State Department said it was “assessing” Tuesday’s announcement.
Separately on Tuesday, three people were shot dead at a protest in the western city of Herat. Medical workers said they were killed when Taliban militants opened fire. In the capital Kabul, the Taliban also fired warning shots as hundreds of people demonstrated in the streets.
