Taliban

NPR's Michael Sullivan reports on the latest developments in Afghanistan, where the ruling Taliban has been engaged in the demolition of two ancient Buddhist statues in the city of Bamiyan. Today, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan is to meet with the Taliban's foreign minister to try to bring a halt to the destruction, which has prompted an international outcry.
