Afghan Family Separated During Evacuation Sees ‘No Sign’ of Reunion

This story is part of a special VOA series marking the one-year anniversary of the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan on August 15, 2021. The series includes eyewitness accounts of the day Kabul fell, stories of Afghan refugees around the world, and data-based analysis of the Taliban’s record of governance and human rights, among other topics.

During the fall of Afghanistan last August, the Merzay family was forced to separate. Today, they are still waiting to be reunited. VOA’s Mohammad Ahmadi has the story from Hyattsville, Maryland.
