Taliban tell NATO: Get out by September 11 or be treated as "occupying forces"

Terror chief Suhail Shaheen said that seizing Kabul was 'not Taliban policy,' but warned that no foreign troops should remain in the capital after September 11 because it might force them to 'react.'

More than 1,000 Afghan troops fled across the northern border into neighbouring Tajikistan on Monday after fighting with the resurgent jihadists...

Speaking to the BBC from the Taliban's Qatar HQ, Shaheen said: 'If [NATO] leave behind their forces against the Doha agreement then in that case it will be the decision of our leadership how we proceed.

'We would react and the final decision is with our leadership.'
