The Taliban are back on the streets of Herat

As the Taliban prepare to form a new government in Afghanistan, a woman tells the story of how her family was torn apart when her father disappeared during Taliban rule in 1999.

Friba, who resides in London, was 10 years old when he last saw his father at his home in the western Afghanistan city of Herat.

His family believes that he was kidnapped by the Taliban.

This is his story. The names have been removed to protect the identity of those affected.
