2 Americans held by the Taliban have been released, sources tell CNN

December 21,2022, Washington — Two Americans who had been detained by the Taliban in Afghanistan have been released and are en route to Qatar, three sources familiar with the matter tell CNN.

Two of the sources tell CNN that one of the Americans is filmmaker Ivor Shearer, who was arrested along with his Afghan producer, Faizullah Faizbakhsh, in August this year while filming in Kabul, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. He was filming where a US drone had killed al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.

CNN is withholding the name of the second American at the request of the family at this time. The status of Faizbakhsh was not immediately clear.
