Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan claims that Afghans have “broken the shackles of slavery” while describing the Taliban’s seizure of power in the neighbouring war-torn country. This and more in our weekly news update from Pakistan.

"It is harder to throw off the chains of cultural enslavement. What is happening in Afghanistan now, they have broken the shackles of slavery," Mr Khan said.

The statement comes after the Taliban reconquered Afghanistan in just over a week and took control of Kabul on 15 August.

The US has evacuated its embassy after the Taliban entered Kabul two weeks earlier than the August 31 deadline for the complete pullout of the US troops.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has fled the country, conceding that the Taliban have won the 20-year war.
