Taliban Ban Long Distance Road Trip For Solo Women Travellers

The Taliban have said Afghan women seeking to travel long distances by road should be offered transport only if accompanied by a male relative.

A directive issued on Sunday said women travelling for more than 45 miles (72km) should be accompanied by a close male family member.

The document also called on vehicle owners to refuse rides to women not wearing Islamic head or face coverings, although it does not say which type of covering to use.

The new restriction is the latest curb on women’s rights since the Islamist group seized power in August. A majority of secondary schools remain shut for girls, while most women have been banned from working.
