Taliban take Kunduz

The Taliban have overrun the northern Afghan city of Kunduz, taking control of most areas and freeing hundreds of prisoners from its jail. Hundreds of militants stormed the city before dawn, quickly seizing key buildings and advancing on the airport. The government says it has sent reinforcements to Kunduz and fighting is ongoing. Kunduz would be the first provincial capital taken by the Taliban since they lost power in 2001’s US-led invasion. The attack came a day before the first anniversary of President Ashraf Ghani’s unity government”.
