Jihadist group loyal to Taliban, al Qaeda claims to have captured Afghan district

“The Taliban claims to have captured the Registan district in the southern province of Kandahar. In a statement released on Oct. 2, the Taliban said it had routed Afghan forces in Registan, forcing them to flee to the neighboring ‘Shorawak district after dozens were killed and wounded.’ This ‘led to [the] Mujahideen liberating the district center, unfurling the sublime white flag of Islam over it and bringing the entire district under their complete control.’

Afghan officials quickly denied the Taliban’s claims. “
