FIFA is investigating claims of sexual abuse inside the Afghan football federation - the AFF. The AFF rejects the claims. One of the whistleblowers told DW she's been waiting since April for FIFA to take action.
Six Afghan Football Federation members have been suspended over claims of abuse on the country's women's soccer team. Two players have said they were sexually abused and assaulted, but the AFF denies this.
A movement similar to #MeToo is taking shape in Afghanistan — one of the world's most dangerous countries for women — as more and more people are speaking up against sexual abuse.
