Taliban forces have taken control of Kandahar, Afghanistan's second-largest city, as the insurgent group continues to advance towards the capital city of Kabul.
- On Friday, the Taliban claimed to have taken full control of the city and seized "hundreds of weapons, vehicles and ammunition".
- The country's third-largest city, Herat, also fell to Taliban forces earlier this week.
- The U.S. has deployed 3,000 troops to Kabul to help assist with evacuating Americans out of Afghanistan.
- Will this impact the U.S. plan to withdraw troops from Afghanistan?
