Afghanistan: Waiting for the Taliban

Channel 4: Unreported World

This week Unreported World travels to Kabul, where director Alex Nott and reporter Peter Oborne find a city under siege. Kidnappings, suicide bombings and shootings are becoming more frequent as the Taliban and powerful criminal gangs create unprecedented levels of instability and lawlessness.


Checkpoints, blast walls and razor wire ring the city in an attempt to stop the attacks: and everyday that passes, Kabul beings to look more like Baghdad.


"Anyone who would dare to hope that life in Afghanistan is improving should make a point of watching this short, unambiguous dispatch by Peter Oborne."
