This is not the only video of Taliban militants that has created a stir online since the insurgent group assumed power in August last year.
Last year, videos of Taliban members enjoying joy rides at an amusement park in the capital went viral. The short clip showed the militants riding electric bumper cars, some of them with guns in their hands.
Videos also showed Taliban members jumping gleefully on a trampoline. Watch the clip here.
In a video released by the country’s General Directorate of Intelligence in January, a team of Afghan intelligence agents poured 3,000 litres of alcohol into a canal in Kabul, as part of the Taliban’s efforts to crack down on the sale of liquor in the country.
According to reports, the clip showed the GDI agents pouring alcohol into the canal. It was not clear when the raid was carried out and the alcohol destroyed. Watch the clip here:

Almost 23 million of the country’s population of 38 million people faces what the United Nations calls a hunger crisis of “unparalleled proportions”.
