The Taliban government confiscated up to six million dollars in cash and about 15 gold bars from the residence of Amrullah Saleh, the former Afghan vice president in Panjshir province.

The video shows Taliban fighters sitting around two suitcases stuffed with foreign currency and gold bars.

The Taliban fighters can be seen counting the stacks of cash in the video, which went viral on social media.

Muttaqi claimed that a total of six and a half million US dollars, along with 18 gold bars, were recovered from Saleh’s residence.

Last week, Saleh’s brother Rohullah Azizi was executed by the Taliban, his nephew had claimed.

The news that Saleh’s brother was killed came days after Taliban forces took control of the provincial center of Panjshir, the last province holding out against them.

“They executed my uncle,” Ebadullah Saleh told Reuters in a text message. “They killed him yesterday and would not let us bury him. They kept saying his body should rot.”

In a tweet, former Afghan President Hamid Karzai called for peace and stability and expressed his hope that the new Facilitation Government, which does not have any non-Taliban element, would become an inclusive government that could be the true face of all of Afghanistan.

Karzai marked the Sept. 11 anniversary with a meeting with tribal leaders at his compound in the capital, Kabul, where he has been with his family since the Taliban’s public return to power.

Twenty years after the September attacks, the Taliban returned to power in Kabul, and the US forces left to end the eternal war two weeks before the anniversary of the attacks after the movement captured the capital on August 15.
