AFGHANISTAN: The Taliban have taken over the Norwegian embassy in Kabul and taken to smashing wine bottles and destroying books at the establishment.

Norwegian ambassador to Iran, Sigvald Hauge, said in a tweet, “Taliban has now taken over the Norwegian Embassy in Kabul. Say they will return it to us later. But first wine bottles are to be smashed and children’s books destroyed. Guns are apparently less dangerous.”

Earlier, the Taliban had said that they would not interfere with the diplomatic establishments of foreign nations, including embassies.

The Taliban are now forming the Government in Afghanistan that is likely to be led by Hibatullah Akhundzada. Taliban’s hardline interim government includes specially designated global terrorist Sirajuddin Haqqani as the acting interior minister. - PTI
