Heavy fighting has been taking place in Afghanistan’s Panjshir Valley where militia fighters claim they’re holding out against Taliban forces overnight, amid premature rumours that the Taliban had captured the territory.

At least 17 people were killed during celebratory gunfire in Kabul. Meanwhile Pakistan’s intelligence chief was spotted in the Afghan capital earlier today by our international editor Lindsey Hilsum, who joins us now from Kabul.
