The Swedish Committee for Afghanistan says Taleban supporters have looted five of its offices in northern Afghanistan and forced it to close operations.
The Swedish group says its offices were looted on and off over two days in five separate Afghan cities -- Mazar-e-Sharif, Pul-e-Khumri, Kunduz, Taloqan and Ghazni.
The group operates clinics and schools and helps farmers grow crops in rural Afghanistan. It says its local staff was beaten and forced to flee.
The group's director said nearly half of the committee's 80 vehicles were seized, and -- in Ghazni -- used by senior Taleban officials to flee the region. He said computers, printers, photocopying machines, telephones and furniture also were taken.
