AFGHANASTIAN – The Taliban have arrested five women taking part in a protest in the Afghan capital, Kabul, against the ban on attending women’s universities.

Three journalists were also arrested.

Guards stopped hundreds of women from entering universities on Wednesday – a day after the ban was announced.

It is the latest policy restricting women’s education since the Taliban returned to power last year.
