Afghan Taliban take a good step for people of Afghanistan

KABUL - Afghan Taliban take a good step for people of Afghanistan as they lifted a ban on World Health Organisation (WHO) activities in areas the militants control.

They have reversed a stance that had been complicating efforts to eradicate polio.

The Taleban had in April banned the WHO and International Committee of the Red Cross, citing their "suspicious activities"during vaccination campaigns, which threatened to deepen one of the world's worst humanitarian crises, Reuters has reported.

The health arm of the United Nations has been carrying out a vaccination campaign in Afghanistan, one of just three countries where polio is still endemic.
