From the Committee to Protect Journalists:

Taliban authorities must allow Washington Post journalist Susannah George to return to and work from Afghanistan and should stop all attempts to restrict the press, the Committee to Protect Journalists said Thursday. In a statement on Thursday, April 20, Washington Post Executive Editor Sally Buzbee said that George, the paper’s Islamabad-based Afghanistan and Pakistan bureau chief, was informed by the Taliban that she was barred from reporting from Afghanistan. The statement said her last reporting trip to Afghanistan was in November 2021.
