Afghan women share photos of dresses to protest Taliban compulsory on black hijab
Afghan women, including those on the national cricket team, will be banned from playing any sport under the new Taliban government, according to an official with the Islamist group, writes The Guardian.
In an interview with the Australian television station SBS, the deputy head of the Taliban's cultural commission, Ahmadullah Wasiq, said that women's sport is neither appropriate nor necessary. "I don't think women will be allowed to play cricket, because it is not necessary for women to play cricket," Wasiq said. "In cricket, they may face situations where their face and body will not be covered. Islam does not allow women to be seen that way. It's the media era and there will be photos and videos, and then people will watch them. Islam and the Islamic Emirate [Afghanistan] do not allow women to play cricket or play sports, ”the official said.
Afghanistan Cricket Council officials said they had not been officially informed of what would happen to the women's cricket team, but competitions had already been suspended.
Athletes, including cricketers, have been hiding in Afghanistan since the Taliban took power, with some women saying they have been threatened with violence by Taliban fighters if caught playing.
New protests took place in Afghanistan on Wednesday, despite Taliban attempts to intimidate any form of opposition. A group of women from a Hazara-dominated area in western Kabul protested against the new government in a series of protests in several cities.
Recordings posted on social media show protesters shouting "A government without women will fall" as they march through the city. Some had placards that read, "Work, Education, and Freedom."
Some images show women being beaten to end the protest.

Police in Hague have detained more than 400 people after demonstrations against the restrictions of the coronavirus
Police in Hague detained about 400 people on Sunday after refusing to leave an organized protest to challenge the social deterrence measures imposed by the authorities to limit the spread of the coronavirus, Reuters reports.
Several thousand protesters gathered in the Malieveld area of Hague, near the seat of the Dutch government, even though the assembly had been banned by the authorities.
"I detained about 400 people today. Many of them have since been released, "police said on Twitter.
Authorities allowed a brief protest in the afternoon before asking protesters to leave.
Protesters wore T-shirts marked "Stop Restrictions" and had placards calling for the rule to keep people 1.5 meters apart from being removed.
Police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck.
The mayor of Hague, Johan Remkes, said the demonstration was banned because authorities had information that "troublemakers" from across the Netherlands, including groups of hooligans at football matches, intended to come to The Hague.
"This has nothing to do with the right to protest or freedom of expression. This group deliberately intended to disturb public order, "Remkes said in a statement.
Thousands of people have celebrated 155 years since the abolition of slavery in the United States. The statue of a Confederate general, shot down by protesters
Thousands of Americans marked the 155th anniversary of "Juneteenth" (English name formed by the combination of the word "June" and 19) on Friday, the date of the abolition of slavery, amid racial tensions affecting the country after the death of George Floyd, according to AFP.
"I am a woman of color, I have lived in this country for 20 years and I am here to say that the lives of blacks matter, those of my children and brothers, to be able to live in a safe country," he told AFP , Tabatha Bernard, 38, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, in the huge New York procession.
Demonstrations on the occasion of "Juneteenth", the day in 1865 when the last slaves were released in Galveston, Texas, were organized in the four corners of the country.
In Washington, protesters who denounced "racism, oppression and police violence" first gathered around the Martin Luther King Memorial at the call of professional players from local basketball clubs.
Near the White House, the event was festive in the already well-known meeting place called "Black Lives Matter Plaza". Hundreds of people danced to the sounds of Go-go Music before marching through the streets of the center of the federal capital.
"We will not be able to eliminate all racist police officers," said Joshua Hager, 29, but "we want most of them fired and held accountable."
His partner, Yamina BenKreira, expressed the wish that the history of African Americans be better taught so that young people "become aware" of these discriminations.
In recent weeks, calls for the dismantling of monuments in memory of Confederate soldiers present throughout the south of the country have multiplied.
At the root of this movement is the debate over racism in America, rekindled by the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American who suffocated under the knee of a white police officer during his arrest in late May in Minneapolis.

During the protests triggered by the death of the black American George Floyd, among the target shops of the protesters' robberies was the giant Apple, from where many phones and other devices were stolen. However, it appears that the perpetrators will not be able to use any object "purchased" illegally,
The iPhones stolen by those who robbed Apple stores during the protests triggered by the death of George Floyd will not only not be able to be used, but would take the police directly to the thieves, informs BBC.
The stolen phones were deactivated by the company and are being tracked, and local authorities were notified of the theft. The company sent a message displayed on their screens, explaining all these things.
Several images with these warnings appeared on the screens of the stolen phones were later published on social networks. Apple has temporarily closed some of its stores in the US, after a series of attacks during the BLM-Black Lives Matter movement.
There has long been a suspicion that phones on display in Apple stores have software installed that allows them to be tracked even if they are stolen. This was originally created if they are lost, if the buyer can no longer find his mobile.
The photos published on social networks confirm these rumors. An image on Twitter shows a phone with the message: "Please return the product to Apple Walnut Street. This device has been disabled and is being tracked. Local authorities will be alerted. " It seems that this type of message would have appeared on all stolen electronics during this period, so thieves will not be able to enjoy their use.
