    Reports from Afghanistan suggest ...

    Hello,

    "Reports from Afghanistan suggest the country's Vice-President General Abdul Rashid Dostum tried to fly back from Turkey on Monday but was denied permission to land."

    Source: Listening from BBC News

    What does “suggest” mean in the above-mentioned sentence?

    "Suggest" in this context means that the reader of the "reports" believes the actions to be true but they are not proven with certainty.
