Hundreds of Taliban insurgents have stormed and seized control of the administrative headquarters of a district in northern Afghanistan where fighting has raged for days, officials said on Tuesday.

Amanuddin Aman, spokesman for the police chief of Sari Pul province, said hundreds of militants had surrounded and attacked the Kohistanat district HQ on Tuesday morning.

Provincial police chief General Mohammad Asef Jabarkhail added that reinforcements had not been sent to back up the police, around 60 miles from the provincial capital, resulting in the forced surrender of one commander and seven of his men.

“Right now we are working on a plan to launch a joint operation to retake the district from the Taliban,” Jabarkhail added.
