In July, the Taliban* claimed they captured a crossing connecting the Spin Boldak district to the Chaman sector in Pakistan, a strategically important link in cross-border trade with its neighbour.
Sputnik is live from the Chaman border crossing, as people have gathered near checkpoints in order to leave Afghanistan after the Taliban seized power in the country. Along with the Tokham crossing near Peshawar, Chaman is one of the main trade routes between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Pakistan has reportedly ramped up security at the site, making the process of crossing the border more stringent.
