A video of a demonstration held in Colombia's Medellin city in May 2021 is circulated inaccurately as Taliban choking Afghan Christians in nylon bags.
The reverse search of the viral video's keyframes leads to a YouTube video with the description ''Performance "Empaquetados," uploaded on May 26, 2021. The video's description claims it to be a tribute to those who had gone home to fight for their rights and never returned. On May 27, the Colombian newspaper, ADN Medellin, reported the event on its sixth page.
Other keyword searches revealed photographs from the same event posted on Instagram by lecuento, a Colombian digital media company, on May 27, 2021. Several fact checking organizations have also debunked the same viral video. Therefore, the assertion ''Christians are wrapped in nylon bags to die slowly of suffocation in Afghanistan'' is false because, while there is evidence of the Taliban's atrocities in Afghanistan, the viral video in question is from Colombia, not Afghanistan.
