CNN Reporter Clarissa Ward caught up in aggressive Taliban confrontation



CNN Reporter Clarissa Ward has been caught up in a confrontation with the Taliban

In a filed report, Ward, reporting on the ground in Kabul, states her and her producer had been caught up in an ugly confrontation with Taliban fighters.

Ward has been on the ground since the fall in Kabul, providing America and the rest of the world with an inside look at the Taliban and their agressive takeover.

While filing a report, Ward states that Taliban fighters had been ordering a crowd of people to move, while unlocking his gun and preparing to fire into the crowd.


“Whipping people & firing shots” –

During live crosses with CNN, Ward states that she was screamed at by agitated Taliban fighters who demanded she cover her face.

Her producer was nearly pistol-whipped in the incident, she said.

During a live broadcast from the Kabul airport, Ward – who was wearing a hijab – was confronted by a Taliban with a “huge makeshift whip,” who approached her while “shouting at me to cover my face.”

Ward also stated that other Taliban fighters attempted to pistol-whip her producer for taking a video of the incident.

Ward’s producer escaped harm when another Taliban told the first group to leave them alone because they were journalists and “had permission to film.”

Clarissa Ward has been reporting in Kabul.

“I’ve covered all sorts of crazy situations. This was mayhem. This was nuts,” 

The Taliban have said they would honour women’s rights within the confines of Sharia law.

Prince Harry involved in ‘near catastrophic’ car chase



Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death

Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and her mother were involved in a “near catastrophic car chase” involving paparazzi photographers in New York.

The incident took place after they left the Ms. Foundation for Women, where Meghan was honoured for her work.

“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers,” said Prince Harry’s spokesperson.

The chase involved paparazzi driving on the sidewalk, running red lights and driving while taking pictures.

“I thought that was a bit reckless and irresponsible,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said.

Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death.

Princess Diana was killed when her limousine crashed as it sped away from chasing paparazzi in Paris in 1997.

Harry and Meghan stepped down from their royal duties in 2020, partly over what they described as intense media harassment.

Harry is currently involved in numerous court cases in London where he has accused papers of using unlawful methods to target him and his family.
