A video showing people purportedly tied up in transparent plastic bags has been posted on Facebook alongside claims that it shows persecuted Christians being left to die by the Taliban in Afghanistan. This is false; the footage was taken at a protest against taxes in Colombia and is unrelated to the Taliban’s takeover of  Afghanistan.
