Baku, October 5, AZERTAC

Afghan forces have regained control of the center of the strategically important northern city of Kunduz from Taliban fighters, Afghan police said Tuesday, according to CNN.

Mahfoz Akhbari, spokesman for the chief of Kunduz police, said battles continued in and around the city where Taliban fighters were using civilian homes to launch attacks.

Forty Taliban fighters have been killed, he added.

On Monday, the Taliban launched a pre-dawn raid on the city, which it had briefly captured in September 2015.

Fatima Aziz, a member of Afghan parliament from Kunduz, described the security situation as "very bad" on Tuesday morning.

"They [Taliban] are coming into people's houses all of the night -- they want a place to stay under the house. The Taliban is taking food from families," Aziz told CNN.

Faisal Noori, a local television reporter based in Kunduz, told CNN Tuesday evening that gunfire could still be heard "everywhere in the city."
