Neamat Naghdi, 28-year-old video reporter and Taqi Daryabi, 22-year-old video editor, who both work for Etilaat Roz newspaper and were beaten by the Taliban during incarceration, show their bruises at the newspaper office in Kabul, Afghanistan, September 9, 2021. The two journalists were beaten in police custody after covering a protest by women in Kabul where they were detained by the Taliban, their editor said. Daryabi said seven or eight people beat them for about 10 minutes. "They would raise sticks and beat us with all of their strength. After they beat us, they saw that we had passed out. They took us to lock us up in a cell with a few others," he said. Reuters could not independently verify his account. WANA (West Asia News Agency) via REUTERS

U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney testifies during a Senate Judiciary hearing on the FBI's botched sexual abuse probe of former team doctor Larry Nassar, on Capitol Hill in Washington, September 15, 2021. Maroney was among four gymnasts who told lawmakers how the FBI and U.S. gymnastic and Olympic officials failed to stop the sexual abuse that she and hundreds of other athletes suffered. The emotional hearing painted a damning picture of FBI, which botched the Nassar investigation so badly that he was able to continue abusing more victims for over a year before he was finally arrested. "Not only did the FBI not report my abuse, but when they eventually documented my report 17 months later, they made entirely false claims about what I said," Maroney said. Saul Loeb/Pool via REUTERS
