The National Association of Journalists in Kabul confirmed that due to financial problems, 70 percent of media outlets have stopped working in Afghanistan since the Taliban seized power in the country.

According to the Afghan Khaama Press News Agency, the National Association of Journalists said in a press conference held in Kabul Sunday that they reached this conclusion after conducting an online survey that included 1,500 journalists in 28 provinces in Afghanistan.

"Most of the active Afghan media are facing difficult economic and financial conditions," said Masrour Lutfi, head of the Association.
