Afghanistan: Taliban extend takeover of regional capitals

International Editor

Thousands of people have fled their homes in the Afghan city of Kunduz, amid intense fighting for control between Taliban fighters and government forces.

The insurgents have captured six provincial capitals in a matter of days with their relentless offensive forcing pro-government forces into retreat.

They have rejected international calls for a ceasefire as they push ahead into more territory.
