File, In this Aug. 15, 2016 photo, Taliban suicide bombers stand guard during a gathering of a breakaway Taliban faction, in the border area of Zabul province, Afghanistan. An Afghan official said, Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2016, that the Taliban have pushed into the capital of Uruzgan province in the country's south, triggering fierce clashes and prompting an evacuation of all government officials. The insurgent advance has left Afghan authorities only in charge of the city's police headquarters in Tirin Kot. The provincial spokesman, Doost Mohammad Nayab, says Taliban fighters are besieging the police headquarters and appealed on the government in Kabul for prompt reinforcements.
