A video has surfaced online showing victorious Taliban fighters enjoying dinner at the Presidential Palace in Kabul on Sunday after sweeping into the capital virtually unchallenged.

The Taliban admitted that they were suprised at the speed with which the capital and others cities fell as they conducted a lightening onslaught to take over the country after United States pulled out after 20 years on ground.

The hardline Islamist group which said it was not actually prepared has enlisted the cooperation of local government officials to try and restore some order in the capital as residents fled.
