“In March [27] 2001, the United Nations issued a list of the fourteen worst massacres in Afghanistan between May 1997 and February 2001–thirteen were ascribed to the Taliban. According to a UN observer at that time, the abuses were systematic and repeated, and each followed Taliban attempts to consolidate control over northern and central Afghanistan.”
