GENEVA (Reuters) – The United Nations human rights chief said on Monday nearly 400 people have been killed in Afghanistan since the Taliban took over in August 2021, many by a group linked to Islamic State.

At a month-long Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva, Michelle Bachelet added that more than 50 people with suspected links to this group known as ISIS-K had been killed, some decapitated and their bodies publicly dumped.

The actions of the Afghan Taliban rulers have restricted women’s rights and freedoms, Bachelet said in the same speech. She demanded that women be allowed to “participate fully” in public life.
