Panorama: Inside Taliban stronghold

As international troops prepare to leave Afghanistan after more than a decade of war, the Taliban retains a strong presence in parts of the country.

BBC Panorama has gained unique access inside a Taliban stronghold, little more than an hour's drive from the capital, Kabul.

Reporter Nagieb Khaja saw what life is like under Taliban rule and met the children playing with AK-47 guns.

You can watch Panorama: Inside the Taliban on BBC1 at 20:30 on Monday 20 October.
