Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
US and EU condemn Taliban over 'summary killings' and demand investigation
Early this week Human Rights Watch (HRW) released a report that it says documents the summary execution or enforced disappearance arrest of 47 former members of the Afghan National Security Forces, other military personnel, police and intelligence agents "who had surrendered to or were apprehended by Taliban forces" from mid-August through October.

"Reported cases must be investigated promptly and in a transparent manner, those responsible must be held accountable, and these steps must be clearly publicized as an immediate deterrent to further killings and disappearances," the countries - which include Canada, New Zealand, Romania, Ukraine and several European nations - said in the statement.
Today's Taliban leaders, keen to gain international respectability, have pledged their regime will be different. But the new government has continued to carry out violent punishments, and the United Nations has expressed concern about "credible allegations" that the Taliban has carried out ["]reprisal killings["] since its victory, despite the promises of amnesty for the fallen government's troops.
