Afghans in UAE fear nightmare of Taliban rule

Description

Afghan restaurant owner Aziz Ahmed, who has called the UAE home for over 20 years, says the Taliban's return to power is little short of a nightmare.

    Taliban fighters laugh and whoop onboard a pirate ship ride at an amusement park in the west of Afghanistan's capital Kabul. An incongruous scene, and one that might have been unimaginable during the group's brutally oppressive reign in the 1990s.
