Afghanistan hit by brain drain as ‘best and brightest’ flee Taliban rule
Los Angeles, 14 Sept. - (ANA) - The re-emergence of Taliban rule has triggered the departure of thousands of highly skilled Afghans from what is already one of the world’s most under-developed nations.
As the insurgents continue to tighten their grip, people with “a wealth of skills and experience” are “joining a brain drain of such grave proportions that even the Taliban, faced with running one of the world’s poorest countries, has taken notice with dismay”, said the Los Angeles Times. - (ANA) -
