Afghanistan: Entirely controlled by the Taliban, and President Ashraf Ghani has left the nation

Afghanistan Entirely Controlled By The Taliban

President Ashraf Ghani has left Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, and a source says he has fled to Tajikistan, a senior Afghan Interior Ministry official said Sunday.

For security considerations, the president’s administration said it “cannot announce anything regarding Ashraf Ghani’s movement.”

A representative of the Taliban, which entered the capital Kabul earlier, said the group was checking on president Ashraf Ghani’s locations.

Taliban insurgents entered Afghanistan’s capital Kabul. They said they expected to take power within days, promising to moderate their earlier hardline Islamist rule even as foreign diplomats and many locals tried to leave.

American diplomats were evacuated from their embassy by chopper.

A senior Afghanistan interior ministry official told the media that Taliban fighters reached the capital “from all sides.”

However, there were no reports of fighting.

Zabihullah Mujahid

The group was in talks with the Western-backed government for a peaceful surrender, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said. 

Ali Ahmad Jalali

Three diplomatic sources said that Ali Ahmad Jalali, a US-based academic and former Afghan interior minister, could be named head of an interim administration in Kabul. However, it was unclear whether the Taliban had agreed.

Known during their past rule for keeping girls out of school and their hardline practice of Islamic law, including punishments of amputation, stoning, and hanging, the Taliban appear to be trying to project a more modern face.
