Afghan forces battle Taliban in Kunduz

Afghan forces launched operations against the Taliban in Kunduz on Sunday, a day after recapturing a strategic district of the northern province from the militants.
Afghan troops forced out the Taliban from Khanabad district, hours after they had taken control on Saturday.
Fighting has sharply escalated in Afghanistan since the insurgency started spreading from its traditional strongholds in the south and east of the country to the once peaceful north.
The militants are seeking to force the NATO-led coalition out of Afghanistan and bring in Islamic law.
