Taliban face armed resistance north of Kabul


BBC News reports: It has been almost a year since the Taliban re-took power in Afghanistan and resistance forces loyal to the previous government are fighting an insurgency.

Clashes are currently limited to a handful of areas long known for anti-Taliban sentiment and the group dismisses the threat posed by them.

Whilst the Taliban are more powerful and better armed than ever before, resistance forces are behind the most sustained clashes the Taliban has seen over the past year.

The BBC was given rare access to one of the areas where they have been active – the Andarab valley, north of Kabul.
