Is Afghanistan's amnesty for Taliban and IS group fighters working?
Since the 2001 US-led intervention in Afghanistan that ousted the Taliban, a series of amnesty programmes have been created, allowing former Taliban and Islamic State group fighters to lay down their weapons in return for an official pardon. Our reporters Margaux Benn, Sonia Ghezali and Shahzaib Wahlah travelled to three Afghan provinces to explore how former Taliban fighters are adapting to their new lives as ordinary civilians. They also find out how the amnesty programme is perceived by family members of victims of the ongoing conflict.
A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett.
