Taliban faction leaders meet former Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Kabul

After their sweeping victory in Afghanistan, Taliban now plan to form a government in the country. They vowed that they would respect the rights of women within the framework of Islamic law. One of the group officials also said the leaders of Afghanistan’s Taliban will show themselves to the world and will not stay in the “shadow of secrecy”. Meanwhile, the White House acknowledged that the Taliban had amassed a significant amount of US military equipment after seizing control of Afghanistan following two decades of war with American forces. Since the Taliban’s lightning seizure of Kabul, horrific visuals have emerged from the Afghan capital showing thousands of desperate Afghans rushing to the Kabul airport. While the French government evacuated several dozen people from Kabul in a military plane overnight, a US official said its military evacuated more than 3,200 people from Afghanistan so far, including 1,100 on Tuesday alone.
