Taliban has won says Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said Sunday after fleeing the country that the Taliban had won, as the militants entered Kabul nearly 20 years after they were ousted from power by a US-led invasion.

Ghani left as the insurgents closed in on the capital, before ultimately entering the city and taking over the presidential palace, sealing a nationwide military victory in just 10 days. The Taliban have carried out a lightning sweep of the country.

There are fears of a security vacuum in Kabul as thousands of police and other armed services members have abandoned their posts, uniforms, and even weapons. The United States began moving its citizens and Afghan staff to Kabul airport.

For the tens of thousands who have sought refuge in Kabul in recent weeks, the overwhelming mood was one of apprehension and fear. “I am worried there will be a lot of fighting here,” one doctor who arrived with his 35-strong family from Kunduz told.
