Taliban ends rift with Red Cross over access
The Taliban will again guarantee safe passage in Afghanistan to Red Cross staff after settling a dispute that forced the agency to halt most of its work.
The charity cut almost all of its aid for Afghans after the militants withdrew protection, leaving staff and buildings open to attack.
The Taliban had accused the Red Cross of failing to ensure militants in government jails were not mistreated. The dispute was resolved after Red Cross officials met Taliban envoys for two days of secret talks in Doha, the capital of Qatar.
