    The situation unfolding in Afghanistan is a “humanitarian catastrophe” and is one of the worst crises in the world, the UN has told the BBC.

    Around 18 million people, more than half the country’s population, are in urgent need of life-saving support.

    There’s been a sharp surge in violence across the country between the Taliban and Afghan government forces following the withdrawal of foreign forces from the country.
