Taliban parade through Qalat City in a show of strength


Afghanistan's Taliban insurgents were seen marching in the city of Qalat on Thursday, in video released on its social media

Footage of armed Taliban fighters marching in the city of Qalat was uploaded to social media on Thursday. Dressed in white head-to-toe uniforms and flak jackets, the Islamist militants carried firearms as they marched in a straight line through the city centre. The Taliban called for unity ahead of Friday prayers, the first since they seized power. They asked imams to persuade people not to leave Afghanistan amid the chaos at the airport, protests and reports of violence.
