The Taliban have been making major advances across Afghanistan as foreign troops withdraw, taking at least five regional capitals since Friday.
In their most significant gain, the Taliban are now reported to have overrun the northern city of Kunduz.
The city of 270,000 people is considered a gateway to mineral-rich northern provinces.
It is in a strategically important location close to the border with Tajikistan, which is used for the smuggling of opium and heroin.
