More than three weeks after capturing the capital Kabul on August 15, the new Afghan authorities are still working on forming a government, which they promise will be more inclusive than under their previous regime.

But in the face of fears of a return to the strict regime imposed between 1996 and 2001, small groups of Afghans, often women, protested in cities such as Kabul, Herat and Mazar-i-Sharif.

A protester from Kapisa province, near the Panjshir Valley, said Afghan women want their country to be liberated, and they are tired of “Pakistan’s bombing in Panjshir,” she told AFP.

The last bastion of resistance to the new Afghan force took refuge in the Panjshir Valley, which fell under its authority, according to the Taliban, on Monday.

Some opposition leaders denied this and called for intensified resistance.
