Danish-Afghan journalist Nagieb Khaja reports from the Taliban stronghold of Charkh, Logar Province. Khaja bears witness to the parallel administration the Taliban have built in Charkh, and hears testimony from the population—including from the families of civilian casualties of Afghan National Army (ANA) bombings.
Khaja is the first Western journalist to film a Taliban Islamic law court where he witnesses a case in which the defendant is a Taliban member. The outcome is surprising.
Khaja also visits local boys and girls’ schools run in concert with the Taliban.
This is Taliban Country shows a defiant Taliban determined to continue attacking the ANA bases and keep control of the region.
