CNN reporter describes Taliban chanting ‘Death to America’ on Kabul streets as ‘friendly’

CNN’s Chief International Correspondent Clarissa Ward described a group of Taliban fighters as “friendly” whilst they chanted “Death to America” on the streets of Kabul.

During a news package on Monday, the reporter interviewed a number of insurgents and Afghanistan citizens following the fall of the capital and at one stage, described the situation as “utterly bizarre”.

Ward also noted later in the package that her “presence” on the streets was creating “tension”, because she’s a woman.
