Ahead of 9/11, Taliban vow to keep fighting
Kabul - The Taliban say the will keep fighting against US forces in Afghanistan until all American troops leave the country.
In a statement sent to media on Saturday, the Taliban say they had no role in the September 11 attacks and that the US and its allies were responsible for killing thousands of Afghans during the invasion and ensuing occupation.
The United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan on October 7 2001, after the Taliban, who then ruled the country, refused to hand over Osama bin Laden.
At the time, the late al-Qaeda leader was living in Afghanistan, where the terror network had training camps from where it planned attacks against the US and other countries.
