Since the 2001 US-led intervention in Afghanistan that ousted the Taliban, a series of amnesty programmes have been created, allowing former Taliban and Islamic State group fighters to lay down their weapons in return for an official pardon. Our reporters Margaux Benn, Sonia Ghezali and Shahzaib Wahlah travelled to three Afghan provinces to explore how former Taliban fighters are adapting to their new lives as ordinary civilians. They also find out how the amnesty programme is perceived by family members
Islamic State group fighters beheaded three of Niaz Bibi's sons and shot three grandsons dead in a remote part of Afghanistan's Nangarhar province which is home to both the Taliban and a growing IS affiliate. Now Bibi, 70, is left taking care of the surviving grandchildren -- about 40 orphans in total.
