– ROME, AUGUST 17 – One of the Taliban spokespersons, Suhail Shaheen, told Sky News that Afghan women will be able to access education, including university, under the rule of the Taliban, adding that women will have to wear the hijab but not the burqa. Suhail Shaheen also said that “thousands” of schools continue to operate. The group has already announced a “general amnesty” in Afghanistan and reassured those who had worked with the previous government: “Their property will be saved and their honor and their lives will be safe.” (HANDLE).
