About the series
CGTN's Sean Callebs and Photojournalist Andrew Smith tell the stories of today's Afghanistan through the eyes of its people.
In Afghanistan, after nearly two decades of fighting, ISIL and the Taliban control large areas of the country. The violence, especially suicide attacks, can tear apart families and communities. CGTN's Sean Callebs has a look into the lives of Afghans living under insurgent rule.
Buddha statues from the 6th century were destroyed in the historic city of Bamyan nearly 20 years ago. One man says the Taliban forced him to do it. CGTN's Sean Callebs went back to Afghanistan to get his side of the story for the special series, "Through Their Eyes."
The U.S. has been fighting a losing war in Afghanistan for over 19 years. On this episode we speak to CGTN Correspondent Sean Callebs on why U.S. forces have not been able to defeat the Taliban and how the security situation has deteriorated over the past ten years.
