U.N. Warns of Reports of Human Rights Abuses by the Taliban

Michelle Bachelet, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights, cited reports that the Taliban were executing civilians and noncombatant soldiers, violating the rights of women, recruiting child soldiers and repressing peaceful protests in Afghanistan.
