No word yet on formation of new govt in Afghanistan

In Afghanistan, there is no word yet on the formation of a new government. News agency reports from Kabul quoting Taliban Spokesman had earlier suggested a new cabinet was likely to be in place today with Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar heading the new regime.

In another development, Tolo News Agency reports that at  least 17 people were killed and 41 were injured during a celebratory firing by the Taliban in Kabul yesterday. The firing occurred after the Taliban said that they had taken control of the Panjshir. However, the National Resistance Forces led by Ahmad Massoud have said, they are still in control of the Panjshir valley. Both the sides have claimed heavy casualties in the conflict.

Panjshir valley has been the stronghold of Ahmad Massoud and his fighters who held out fot a decade against the Soviet Union occupation in the past and then against the Taliban rule during 1996-2001.
