The Taliban is responding to protests in many parts of Afghanistan with violence, using live ammunition, batons, and whips.
According to the UN Human Rights office on Friday, at least four have died due to the Taliban's use of force.
They issued an instruction prohibiting unauthorized assemblies on Wednesday and cut off Internet connections in some areas.
The Taliban reportedly killed a man and a boy during national flag-raising ceremonies in mid-August and killed two men during a protest in Herat on September 7th.
A UN spokesperson urged the Taliban to stop using violence, saying that peaceful protests are protected under international human rights law.
