Government forces in Afghanistan battled a major assault Saturday by Taliban insurgents on Lashkar Gah, the capital of southern Helmand province as officials said clashes were ongoing inside parts of the city.

Both sides reportedly suffered heavy casualties. The fierce fighting forced civilians to flee for safety amid allegations that Afghan air force planes had bombed and destroyed a city hospital.

The provincial governor, Mohammad Ali Alizai, told reporters the arrival of reinforcements and airstrikes against insurgent positions had helped contain Taliban advances. However, security officials confirmed to VOA that clashes were continuing in parts of the provincial capital.

Heavy fighting was also reported in the adjoining city of Kandahar, the capital of the province of the same name, and outside the capital city of the western Herat province, next to the country's border with Iran.

Security conditions have deteriorated across Afghanistan since May 1st, when the United States and NATO allies began withdrawing their last remaining troops from the country after 20 years.

Tenants saddled with months of back rent are facing the end of a federal eviction moratorium, which expires in a few hours, a move that could lead to millions being forced from their homes just as the highly contagious delta variant of the coronavirus is rapidly spreading.

The Biden administration announced Thursday it would allow the ban to expire, saying it wanted to extend it due to rising infections but its hands were tied after the U.S. Supreme Court signaled in June that it wouldn't be extended beyond the end of July without congressional action.

House lawmakers on Friday attempted, but failed, to pass a bill to extend the moratorium even for a few months.

There are more protests in France this weekend over a new requirement that a special coronavirus pass be shown to enter restaurants and other public places. AP's Ben Thomas has details.

"Liberty" was the slogan of the day at pass protests across France. The marches drew estimates of more than 200,000 people around the country, more than 14,000 in Paris, where tensions flared in front of the Moulin Rouge nightclub. As someone in the crowd hurled objects, police fired tear gas and water cannon. ... say three officers were injured while at least one protester was seen bleeding from the head.

With COVID-19 infection spiking in France and hospitalizations rising, lawmakers have passed a bill requiring a special pass in most places as of August 9th. The pass requires a vaccination or a quick negative test or proof of a recent recovery from COVID-19. Polls show a majority of French support the pass.

More than 400,000 AstraZeneca vaccine doses from Britain arrived in Kenya on Saturday, the first of two consignments destined for Kenya as a bilateral donation from the United Kingdom. More will arrive through the international COVAX system.

"... so please, please, please, if you have the opportunity to get vaccinated, do, because you're not just protecting yourself but protecting your friends and families and those who are around you."

Gauld said the delivery was part of Britain's pledge to donate 100 million vaccine doses worldwide, 30 million of them by the end of this year.
