Taliban thought to control two thirds of Afghanistan

The Afghan government has suffered further setbacks in trying to hold off the seemingly relentless advance of the Taliban. A humanitarian crisis is deepening, as tens of thousands are forced to flee the fighting. The militants are estimated to control two thirds of Afghanistan.

Aisha Khurram, a law student at Kabul University and former youth representative to the UN, told that while many were seeking safety in Kabul, no one was really safe, but while their lives may be at risk, people were still prepared to fight.
