Taliban stops Karzai at Kabul airport to leave for UAE

KABUL: Afghan Taliban on Saturday prevented former President Hamid Karzai to leave the country, BBC Pashtu reported on Sunday.

As per details, the former Afghan President wanted to attend the funeral prayer of the UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, but Taliban officials stopped him at Kabul airport and not allowed him to leave the country.

Taliban has yet to comment on the incident, but in the past, they claimed that there is no ban on any former Afghan officials to go abroad.
