Afghanistan President, Ashraf Ghani, has reportedly fled the country as the Taliban entered the capital, Kabul and met little resistance.

Since the United States Government pulled out its troops from the country, the Taliban have been capturing more cities in Afghanistan. U.S. President, Joe Biden has insisted that he would not reverse the decision.

According to the BBC, Mr Ghani is on his way to Tajikistan. In other reports, the Taliban have been reported to have seized the presidential palace in Kabul. Also, a Taliban spokesperson said their fighters have been ordered to prevent looting activities in the city and allow safe passage for anyone wanting to leave.

Many experts had predicted the aforementioned events, that with U.S. forces leaving Afghanistan, the Taliban would retake the country in about six months and form a government there.

 

The Taliban, who promote strict Islamic Shariah law, has governed Afghanistan until the U.S. invasion in 2001 after the famous September 11, 2001 terrorist attack in the U.S.
