Families of Americans detained in Afghanistan hope to increase pressure...

CNN. The families of two Americans detained in Afghanistan hope to ratchet up pressure on the Biden administration to do more to get their loved ones home after more than a year.

Ryan Corbett and Mahmood Shah Habibi were both detained in Afghanistan in August 2022, a year after the country fell back under Taliban control following the US withdrawal from the country after nearly two decades of war.

Now, their families are becoming increasingly concerned about their well-being, and about how much they have missed in the past 15 months. They hope public attention will lead to progress from the Biden administration.
