The Taliban have vowed revenge after visiting an abandoned detention centre at the former US airbase in Bagram, Afghanistan. The prison is infamous for allegations of torture and detention without trial during its time under the control of US and former Afghan government forces. The facility had been used to imprison Taliban fighters, but also ordinary Afghan and Taliban sympathisers who were deemed dangerous. Many prisoners forced their way out when the Taliban seized control of the country, while others who hadn’t been able to break free were later released by the hardline group.
