Taliban Stages Massive House-To-House Sweep Across Kabul

Published

Kabul (AFP), Feb 27 – The Taliban are conducting a massive security sweep of Kabul and other Afghan cities, their spokesman said Sunday, going house-to-house in search of weapons and criminals blamed for a recent spate of robberies and kidnappings.

The operation, which started Friday, has alarmed many who fear being targeted because of their association with the previous Western-backed regime or the US-led foreign forces who finally withdrew on August 31.

Some irate residents posted videos on social media showing homes they said had been trashed during Taliban searches, but several people told AFP their encounters had been polite and cursory.

“It was just my nephew at home when they came and they made a big mess,” said one resident, who asked not to be named, showing AFP a series of pictures that revealed considerable disruption.

The Taliban called the sweep a “clearing operation”.

“We are trying to take steps against those kidnappers, thieves and looters who have weapons in their hands and threaten the lives of the people,” spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told a news conference.

He said authorities had discovered two kidnap victims during the operation, and also freed two teenage girls who they found chained in a basement.

Mujahid said light and heavy weapons, explosives, radio equipment and drones had been seized, as well as vehicles belonging to the military or government.

Three times Highlife Artist of the year Kuami Eugene has revealed that he is the ghostwriter for one of the most viral songs in West Africa.

Rockstar Eugene visited Giovani Caleb on the 3FM Drive where he disclosed that he wrote one of the most viral songs in Africa for a popular Nigerian artist.

He kept details of the name of the artist and the title of the song to himself but hinted that it ranks among the top 5 viral songs on TikTok.

Kuami Eugene added that he does not regret writing the song for the Nigerian artist because he was paid handsomely for his work.

The Lynx Entertainment Signee has worked with a number of Nigerian musicians but his recent work was on the viral song with CKay.

Eugene could not confirm or deny if that was the song he wrote, all he could say was CKay owns the rights to the song.

Kuami Eugene’s new song ‘Take Away’ is out and streaming on all music platforms.

Hello and welcome to this Wednesday’s live blog on the trial involving Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.

After a long battle, we are now in what could be the last week of proceedings. Depp and Heard have both taken to the stand, and now there is a focus on what the witnesses have to say, as well as those close to the former married couple.

It was thought that Depp could be asked to return to the stand, having done so in the early part of the trial, but it appears as though Heard‘s camp have changed tact and will not do this.

One well-known person who is expected to give evidence via a video link today is Kate Moss, Depp’s ex-girlfriend.

The reason for the trial is that Depp is suing Heard for a sum of 50 million dollars due to a domestic abuse column she wrote in the Washington Post in 2018, while she countersued for 100 million dollars.

Throughout the course of day, you will be able to see the latest news surrounding the Depp-Heard trial, as well as updates from the courtroom in Fairfax, Virginia.

Caitlyn Jenner opened up about Kim Kardashian‘s romantic relationships as a guest on The Pivot Podcast on Tuesday (May 24), and shared her thoughts about her former stepdaughter’s estranged husband Kanye West and her current boyfriend Pete Davidson.

“He was very difficult to live with,” Jenner said of West, though she added that the rapper supported her when she transitioned back in 2015.

“Actually, I’m really into Pete right now with Kim,” she shifted gears, talking about the SNL star’s growing relationship with Kardashian. “We have a comedian in the family. Yay! We don’t need more rappers. We need a comedian in the family.”

Kardashian began dating Davidson in the fall, soon after she hosted Saturday Night Liveand nearly a year after she filed for divorce from Ye. The former couple, who tied the knot in May 2014, share four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

Jenner shared that she ended up meeting the 28-year-old comedian when the Skims founder brought him to the former Olympian’s Malibu home recently. “[Davidson is] very different than what she would normally date, but Kimberly has been through a lot with the guys she’s been with, especially Kanye,” she said. “Pete is 180 degrees in the other direction. First of all, he treats her so well, and when they were over here, Kim [was] so happy, and Kim deserves to be happy.”
