KABUL, Afghanistan (CNN) -- A delegation from the European Union, including Humanitarian Affairs Commissioner Emma Bonino and several journalists, was arrested by the Taliban religious army Monday while visiting a woman's health facility.

At least two men, one of them CNN cameraman Mark Phillips, were struck during the melee, and the 19-member delegation was held for about three hours before being released. CNN Correspondent Christiane Amanpour, who was among those detained, reports on the Taliban's year-long reign of terror.
