Taliban announce three-day ceasefire, marking Eid al Fitr

  • The Taliban has declared a three-day ceasefire across Afghanistan, to mark Eid al Fitr, only two days after more than 50 people - most of which were young girls - were killed in bomb blasts outside a school in Kabul.
  • The ceasefire announcement comes as the United States continues to withdraw its last 2500 troops from the war-torn country, as negotiations between the government and the Taliban falter.

U.S. wasted billions of dollars on cars, buildings in Afghanistan: Report

  • A report by a U.S government watchdog has revealed that the United States wasted billions of dollars in reconstruction aid in Afghanistan on buildings and vehicles, that were either abandoned or destroyed.
  • Out of the $7.8 billion spent on buildings and vehicles since 2008, only $343.2 million worth were "maintained in good condition", according to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).
