report Human Rights Watch

(September 14, 1998) - Human Rights Watch today warned that the Taliban's current military offensive in the Hazarajat region of central Afghanistan could result in the torture and deaths of many more ethnic Hazaras, a Shi'ite minority whom the Taliban has targeted in the past. Aid workers in Pakistan say that thousands of Hazaras were killed when the Taliban took the northern city of Mazar-e Sharif last month.
