In Afghanistan, thousands of Afghan families have fled their homes fearing a major battle between the government forces and Taliban for control of the southern fringes of Kunduz city.

In a statement, the head of Kunduz's refugee department Abdul Salaam Hashemi said survey teams are working to verify how many of those families needed aid.

Afghan security forces and Taliban have been in a standoff on the outskirts of Kunduz for nearly a week.
