Afghanistan: Afghan Taliban capture city of Sangin

479

Afghan forces have spent months trying to keep the Taliban at bay.

The Taliban have captured the crucial southern Afghan city of Sangin after a year-long battle, officials say.

Afghan forces say they have made a tactical retreat from the centre of Sangin.

A spokesman for Helmand’s governor confirmed the district police and governor’s headquarters were now in militant hands.

Almost a quarter of British troops killed during the UK’s combat mission in Afghanistan died defending Sangin.
