A three-member delegation from the Taliban arrived in Kabul to discuss the issue of the Taliban’s prisoners, the group said on Tuesday.
"They (the Taliban delegation) will pursue the issue of release of the prisoners and will conduct the necessary technical measures,” tweeted Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban.
The Ministry of Hajj and Islamic Affairs (MoHIA) on Tuesday issued a Fatwa (religious statement) saying that people should hold their prayers at home in the areas where movements are restricted due to the spread of COVID-19.
The ministry says the congregational prayers, especially Friday and funeral prayers, have been temporarily halted in those areas under lockdown.
