The Taliban turned the Ministry of Women’s Affairs into a Ministry of Ethics. According to the news agency from Kabul, a new ministry board has been installed on the women’s ministry building.
The news agency added that the board read “Worship and guidance, promotion of good and warning from evil”. Women who have been wanting to return to work for several weeks have been sent home, the news agency said.
The door to the building was finally locked today, a female employee said.
The foreign news agency said there was no response from a Taliban spokesman.
