Taliban Memories

The Taliban - we all know them, few of us love them, and it looks like they’re going to rule Afghanistan - again.

So, what was it like the first time the Islamic militants took over, in 1996?

Today, we have two journalists who were in Afghanistan in the 90s. Scott Neuman was working for United Press International and wrote from the scene.

Alan Chin is a photographer who went to Afghanistan to take pictures for The New York Times. 

I’ve known them both for more than 20 years.
