Afghanistan: Taliban fighters attacked police and captured 2 districts of Taywara and Kohistan
Taywara and Kohistan were overrun by the Taliban after days of clashes with security forces.
Taliban fighters have overrun two district centres in northern and central Afghanistan, as Afghan forces fight to contain a growing insurgency across the country.
Ghor’s Taywara district fell to the Taliban early on Sunday after several days of clashes with Afghan security forces, Mohammad Mahdavi, deputy chief of the provincial council for Ghor, told DPA news agency.
The central province of Ghor shares borders with two insecure provinces, Farah in the northwest and Helmand in the south, both of which are known as strongholds for Taliban fighters, Mahdavi said.
