Afghanistan: Biden has no regrets over withdrawal as three more provinces fall to Taliban

S President Joe Biden has said he does not regret his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan, as officials say three more provincial capitals have fallen to the Taliban.

Nine out of the country’s 34 provinces are now in the insurgents’ hands as US troops continue their withdrawal.

The fall of the capitals of Badakhshan and Baghlan provinces to the northeast and Farah province to the west put increasing pressure on the country’s central government to stem the tide of the Taliban’s advance.
