Kabul residents hope new government brings prices down

Kabul residents said on Sunday (September 5) they were worried about rising inflation in Afghanistan, and hoped for the announcement of a new government soon to keep it in check.

Afghanistan's economy has been thrown into disarray since the Taliban's takeover. Banks were also closed till August 30, which left many people unable to access their savings till recently.

A Taliban source said the announcement of a new government would be pushed back to next week. Taliban co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, reported by some Taliban sources to be in line to lead the new government, said in remarks on Qatar's Al Jazeera channel that the new administration would include all factions of Afghans.
