The Taliban have entered Afghan capital Kabul, news agency AFP reported quoting locals.

The Taliban have almost completely taken over Afghanistan after capturing major cities, leaving the capital Kabul isolated.

Taliban has said that its fighters were moving rapidly through the outlying districts of Kabul province, with the outskirts of the city in close proximity.

“Don’t panic! Kabul is safe!” tweeted Matin Bek, President Ashraf Ghani’s chief of staff.

Ghani’s government appeared to be left with few options as the Taliban effectively surrounded Kabul.

The loss of Mazar-i-Sharif and Jalalabad were huge back-to-back blows for Ghani and his government.

It left the Taliban holding all the cards in any negotiated surrender of the capital.
