Taliban Orders Female Afghan TV Presenters to Cover Faces on Air

Afghanistan’s Taliban have ordered all female TV presenters to cover their faces on air, the country’s biggest media outlet has said.

The order came in a statement from the Taliban’s virtue and vice ministry, and the information and culture ministry, the Tolo news channel tweeted on Thursday. The statement called the order “final and non-negotiable”, the channel said.

The statement was sent to the Moby Group, which owns Tolo and several other TV and radio networks. The tweet said it was being applied to other Afghan media as well.

A local media official confirmed his station had received the order and was told it was not up for discussion. He said the station had no other option. He spoke on the condition that he and his station not be identified for fear of problems with the authorities.
