The Taliban have returned to power in Afghanistan twenty years after the US first intervened in the region. The Taliban is a Pashtun, Islamic fundamentalist group who have imposed harsh rule, neglect to provide basic services, and abuse human rights previously.

Since regaining control, the Taliban have taken actions reminiscent of their brutal rule in the late 1990s. They have cracked down on protesters, reportedly detained and beaten journalists, and reestablished their Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which under previous Taliban rule enforced prohibitions on behavior deemed un-Islamic.
