The Taliban order a return to the burqa


The Taliban have ordered Afghan women to cover their faces in public, the latest restriction on their freedoms.

Also on the programme, the French President, Emmanuel Macron, has been sworn in for a second term, after his recent election victory over the far right. And, some of America’s big corporate employers are taking a clear stance in the country’s abortion debate, following leaks that the Supreme Court is about to enable individual states to outlaw procedures to terminate pregnancy.
