Taliban bar dozens of unaccompanied women from flights


KABUL: Dozens of women were not allowed to board several flights at Kabul airport on Friday because they were traveling without a male guardian. 
Two Afghan Airlines officials said on anonymity that Taliban officials refused to allow tens of women on Friday to board domestic and international flights as a male family member did not accompany them. 
Some of these women had dual nationalities, including some from Canada. However, on Saturday, some of the women were granted permission to board an Ariana Airlines flight to the western province of Herat, though they had missed their flights by then.
