Taliban paint flag on U.S. embassy in Kabul

The group's black and white flag was also seen hanging from poles lining the streets of the capital.

U.S. troops and diplomats left the country last week, as the United States completed the withdrawal of its forces, ending a 20 year war that culminated in the Taliban's return to power.

More than three weeks after seizing Kabul, the Taliban have yet to announce a new government.
