This comes after Afghan president, Ashraf Ghani departed the country on Sunday as the Taliban advanced further into the capital Kabul.

Helicopters could also be seen racing overhead throughout the day to evacuate personnel from the US and UK Embassy while smoke rose near the embassy compound as staff destroyed important sensitive documents.

Many cities fell to the Taliban without a fight after tribal elders stepped in to negotiate the withdrawal of government forces in order to avoid bloodshed.

The militants told foreigners in Kabul to either leave or register their presence with Taliban administrators.

Thousands of Afghan nationals could also be seen rushing to the Pakistan border on Sunday, in a move signalling the end of the 20-year intervention by the US and NATO after the September 11 attacks in New York and Washington DC.

With these turn of events, the Taliban will now restart it’s hardcore Islamic rule in the country where women don’t come out during the day and if they no part of their body or face must show and they must walk with either thier husband or father.
