KABUL, AFGHANISTAN – AUGUST 19: People try to adjust their life under Taliban rule in Afghanistan as the situation in the country became more desperate after fighters took the control after 20 years.

In the capital Kabul people filled the bazaars.

The Taliban have rapidly taken over Afghanistan in a lightning offensive that blindsided Western powers, as government forces melted away.

The capital Kabul fell to the Taliban on Sunday after the Afghan government collapsed, with President Ashraf Ghani and other key officials fleeing the country.

There were scenes of panic and chaos at Kabul airport on Monday as desperate residents tried to flee the war-torn country. Deaths were reported as some clung to planes flying out of the capital.
