The "Taliban must allow" the reopening of shelters and other institutions for Afghan women in order to protect the women from "further violence." Amnesty International in a statement expressed concern over the situation of Afghan women @amnesty https://t.co/MZcIlZAR6p

The Afghan state is collapsing after the world responded to the Taliban takeover by freezing state assets, cutting aid and offering only limited sanctions relief for humanitarian purposes. The economy is in freefall. https://t.co/cyJvcRpmq1

.@Malala passes on a message from Afghan school girl Sotooda Forotan to @SecBlinken & @JoeBiden urging them to support girls' education "if girls don't learn, Afghanistan may suffer too." Afghanistan is currently the only country in the world banning teenage girls from school https://t.co/x2DOlU8fxq

80 days ago the Taliban effectively banned teenage girls from attending school. Boys of all ages were allowed back but girls over 12 were not. While some provinces have allowed girls to return to their classrooms, millions are still waiting #LetAfghanGirlsLearn #Afghanistan

"Women and girl survivors of gender-based violence have essentially been abandoned in Afghanistan. Their network of support has been dismantled, and their places of refuge have all but disappeared,” said Agnès Callamard @amnesty Secretary General. https://t.co/7aZwVMlyTb

“Women’s inclusion in political, social & economic affairs is their right & if this right is taken from women, the government is broken.” Afghan women call on the international community to pressure the Taliban to uphold the rights of women https://t.co/VNK45EbZiZ

In this wide-ranging interview, I asked @AnasHaqqani313 when the Taliban plan on creating a more inclusive government. He responded "when the world stops creating problems for us, stops conspiring against us. Change and transformation take time"

I asked @AnasHaqqani313, one of the leaders of the Haqqani Network about revenge attacks & people living in fear in Afghanistan - he said "at first people thought there would be a massacre... if individuals have taken revenge or killed someone, that is against our general policy"

When I asked @AnasHaqqani313, a key figure in the Haqqani Network about women's rights he said "we've been portrayed as monsters... it is not true that the Taliban do not respect women's rights... one thing needs to be made clear, Afghanistan is not Europe or the US"

Nearly four months since the Taliban seized power, Afghanistan is on the brink of a mass starvation that aid groups say threatens to kill a million children this winter https://t.co/DQ5IIF9bB7

Secretary Antony Blinken
Today I met @Malala, whose story and voice have encouraged women and girls everywhere to stand boldly in their strength and purpose. We discussed the role of girls’ education and how investing in women and girls creates a brighter future. Thank you, Malala, for all that you do.

Fred Hiatt was a giant at the Post and indeed across journalism. He also was a kind and compassionate man, and a devoted husband and father. Today is a sad day. R.I.P. https://t.co/basiDW50Kr

I’m gutted to learn this news. RIP, Fred & thank you for amplifying the voices of so many right into the halls of power. So much truth to this: “Few journalists have rivaled his idealism & complete dedication to the causes of democracy and human rights worldwide.” https://t.co/xoBW6qdfFQ

We at @PostOpinions and @washingtonpost are reeling. Fred Hiatt, our beloved friend, mentor, conscience and leader, is gone. There never has lived a more decent man.

Fred Hiatt was a prince of a man. A champion of human rights, a kind friend and beloved mentor, a man who deployed his wit and brilliance to nudge all those around him toward a better, more humane, more democratic world. I'm devastated by his loss.

Sad to report the death this morning of Fred Hiatt, the editor of the @washingtonpost’s editorial page and a wonderful colleague. Note to staff just sent by publisher Fred Ryan:

4. "Last year's budget was about $20 billion with about $7 billion in grants. Now, who is going to give Afghanistan $7 billion in grants this year?... it's a dual shock that I have never seen in economic history." - @AbdallahDardari of @UNDPAf.

Sotodah from Herat Afghanistan,writes to @POTUS “The longer schools and universities remain closed to girls, the more our shared hope for the future fades. Girls’ education is a powerful tool for building peace and security. If girls don’t learn, Afghanistan will suffer too.🇦🇫 https://t.co/pkNtbG3gl3

Once again @WesternUnion and @MoneyGram are out of operation in Afghanistan. People are lining up for days outside banks only for staff to tell them there’s not enough cash to pay out transfers. This as people are trying to get hold of enough money to eat.
