In Afghanistan, the Taliban claimed to have captured the provincial capital of Southwestern province of Nimrose.
It is the first provincial capital to fall to the Taliban in recent years though. There has been no confirmation from the afghan government. It comes as the taliban continue to make rapid advances in the country as foreign troops withdraw. They have taken swathes of the country’s side and are also targeting key cities.
The capture of Zaranj would add to the momentum of the Taliban who have launched a major offensive across the country as foreign forces complete their withdrawal. Earlier the taliban came to have killed the head of the Afghan government media department.
