New Delhi, 11 October 2021

As per news report of NDTV, The Taliban, which seized power in August and declared an Islamic emirate, are seeking international recognition and assistance to avoid a humanitarian disaster and ease Afghanistan's economic crisis. But, as the hardline Islamist group transitions from a rebel army to a governing power, they are struggling to contain the threat from the Afghanistan chapter of IS. "US citizens who are at or near the Serena Hotel should leave immediately," the US State Department said, citing "security threats" in the area. "In light of the increased risks you are advised not to stay in hotels, particularly in Kabul (such as the Serena Hotel)," Britain's Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office added. Since the Taliban takeover, many foreigners have left Afghanistan, but some journalists and aid workers remain in the capital.
