Central Afghan province 'falls'
The Taleban control about 90% of Afghanistan
The Taleban movement in Afghanistan says it has captured the last remaining district in the central province of Bamiyan from opposition forces.
There has been no independent confirmation of the operation.
Earlier this month the Taleban captured Bamiyan town and Yakowlang, which was the military stronghold of the predominantly Shia group, Hezb-e-Wahdat.
But there remain areas in the central Afghan region of the Hazarajat that have not been taken by the Taleban, in provinces such as Ghazni, Ghor and Uruzgan.
The Taleban now control about 90% of the country.
The main area they have not yet taken is the north-east of Afghanistan, controlled by the veteran commander, Ahmad Shah Massoud.
The Taleban also say that their military aircraft have been bombing his positions north of the capital, Kabul.
