Freed Afghan MP narrates her ordeal

Fariba Kakar tells Al Jazeera that though Taliban captors treated her with respect, it was a traumatising experience.

    The Taliban released a senior Afghan MP on Saturday, after kidnapping her last month.

    Al Jazeera was the only news organisation to access video of her dramatic release of Fariba Kakar, the first female member of parliament to have been abducted by the group.

    In this exclusive report, Al Jazeera's Jane Ferguson spoke to Kalkar following her release.

    She said that the Taliban treated her with respect, while admitting it was a traumatising experience.
