KABUL: Officials and tribal elders in the southern province of Kandahar warn of the fall of Panjwayee district to Taliban, saying the militant were trying to capture the district.

Panjwayee district lies close to the Durand Line and Taliban fighters can easily come there from the other side of the line and now they try to capture it.

District police chief says they have pushed several Taliban attacks back in the recent days.
