Taliban fighters have seized control of a district in Afghanistan’s southern Helmand province after days of fighting. Earlier, two NATO soldiers were shot dead by men wearing Afghan security forces uniforms.

The fall of Helmand’s Musa Qala was confirmed by the district’s governor, Mohammad Sharif on Wednesday.

“We left the district early in the morning because the Taliban were attacking from all sides,” Sharif told the Reuters news agency via telephone.

“We had asked (the central government) for reinforcements for days but none arrived, and this was what happened,” he added.
