Taliban says US troops staying beyond deadline 'will provoke reaction' – video

Staying beyond the agreed deadline of 31 August would be ‘extending occupation’, Taliban spokesperson Suhail Shaheen said on Monday, and this would ‘provoke a reaction’.

The comments were made after a firefight between unidentified gunmen and US, German and Afghan guards at the airport left one Afghan guard dead and three wounded. Thousands of soldiers have returned to the country to manage the airlifting of foreigners and Afghans who worked with western nations out of the Taliban-controlled country
