Afghanistan’s attorney general banned a New York Times reporter from leaving the country Tuesday because of a controversial story about the country’s recent presidential election, the newspaper said.

Matthew Rosenberg, 40, who joined the Times in 2011 and splits his time between Kabul and Washington, was not being allowed to leave Afghanistan by the office of Attorney General Muhammad Ishaq Aloko.
