"They've got to fight for themselves."- US president, Joe Biden says he does not regret troop withdrawal from Aghanistan despite Taliban advances



US President, Joe Biden has said he does not regret his decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan, as the Taliban continue to make advances.



Violence has escalated across Afghanistan now that US-led forces have all withdrawn following 20 years of military operations.


Since the withdrawal, the Taliban have taken at least eight of the country's 34 provincial capitals, and are threatening more.






More than 1,000 civilians have been killed amid fierce fighting between the Taliban and government forces in the past month, according to the UN.



Unicef warned this week that atrocities being committed against children were growing "higher by the day".
