Taliban murder Afghan singer, Fawad Andarabi after his town was recaptured by the insurgents



The Taliban have reportedly killed an Afghan singer, sparking concerns that the insurgents will return to their oppressive rule.


Fawad Andarabi was shot and killed on Friday in the Andarabi Valley, for which he was named, his family said on Sunday.



His area, Baghlan province, some 100 kilometers (60 miles) north of Kabul, was recaptured by the Taliban on August 15.


Andarabi's son Jawad told the Associated Press that the Taliban had previously come to his father's home and searched it, even drinking tea with the musician. But something changed on Friday.


He was innocent, a singer who was only entertaining people,' Jawad said. 'They shot him in the head on the farm'.



Jawad said he wants justice and that a local Taliban council promised to punish his father's killer.Latest Post
