At least 17 people were killed in celebratory gunfire in Kabul, news agencies said on Saturday, after Taliban sources said their fighters had seized control of Panjshir, the last province in Afghanistan holding out against the Islamist group.

 

Leaders of opposition to the Taliban have denied that the province has fallen.

 

The Shamshad news agency said "aerial shooting" in Kabul on Friday killed 17 people and wounded 41. Tolo news agency gave a similar toll.

The gunfire drew a rebuke from the main Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid.

 

"Avoid shooting in the air and thank God instead," Mujahid said in a message on Twitter. "Bullets can harm civilians, so don't shoot unnecessarily."

^ Another one bites the dust. With a backlog of a 1,000 grievances and a court system that will take years to progress, these folks will be long retired before there is any resolution at which time nobody will care anymore.

What I don’t understand is why decades old allegations are only made after someone is appointed to a position or becomes the centre of attention.

Maybe it is just me but I find it hard to believe that every officer in the military is a sex offender. At some point the media needs to start asking how it is that as soon as someone is given a senior promotion the next day an anonymous complaint surfaces.

^ But they are not anonymous allegations are they?
