The British National said, “The man was struck just for playing music on his phone.

“The Taliban are bringing in a lot of harsh restrictions, for example if you shave your beard you also risk being tortured and abused.

“While the British forces and the Americans are at the airport the Taliban are not enforcing a lot of the laws but when the international forces go they will apply to every single person.

“I am really scared for my family still in Afghanistan.”
