Taliban hold victory rally outside Kabul as they consolidate rule

Taliban supporters and senior figures hold their first mass rally outside Kabul, in a show of strength as they consolidate their rule of Afghanistan.

The official victory gathering in Kohdaman township, in the hilly outskirts of the capital, was attended by 1,500 men and boys. (COMPLETES VIDI9NZ6P3_EN)N°9P26D6
