Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Taliban says US troops staying beyond deadline ‘will provoke reaction'” – below is their description.

Staying beyond the agreed deadline of 31 August would be ‘extending occupation’ Taliban spokesperson Suhail Shaheen said on Monday, and this would ‘provoke a reaction’.

The comments were made after a firefight between unidentified gunmen and US, German and Afghan guards at the airport left one Afghan guard dead and three wounded. Thousands of soldiers have poured back in to manage the frantic airlifting of foreigners and Afghans who worked with western nations out of the Taliban-controlled country.
