Afghanistan: Five UK residents delivered by Taliban
The Taliban have delivered a few British residents who were kept in Afghanistan after an understanding was arrived at between the two nations, Taliban and UK authorities have said. The prisoners were delivered on Sunday following a progression of gatherings among Afghan and British authorities, said Zabihullah Mujahid, a representative for the Taliban government, in a proclamation on Monday.
The loved ones of Peter Jouvenal, a columnist and finance manager with a long relationship with Afghanistan, said he was among those delivered. On February 12, the public authority in London said a “number” of British nationals were being confined and that it disliked the Taliban. Among them was Jouvenal, who was halted last December.
In a proclamation on Monday, his loved ones said Jouvenal had been held for over a half year by the Taliban. They said they were “thankful to the huge number of individuals who have upheld the mission to deliver him.”They additionally expressed gratitude toward the FCDO, which “worked vigorously” for his delivery.
The equipped gathering had the earlier day delivered two abroad writers who had been held, including a previous BBC reporter.
