Saudi Arabia Funds Taliban in Afghanistan

The fundamentalist regime in Saudi Arabia continues to monetarily support the Islamic Fundamentalist regime Taliban in its quest to occupy more land. Taliban has banned women from working, punished them for not covering themselves from head to foot and has prohibited girls from attending school. With strong financial support, the Taliban is looking to capture Northern Afghanistan, and many fear that it will attempt to spread its brand of extremism to neighboring Muslim states.
