Afghan security personnel have overrun the Taliban-held Nawa district and established government control there after four years, a police official said Tuesday.

"Finally, Afghan army and police after several days of operation evicted Taliban rebels and captured Nawa district Monday night," provincial police chief Zarawar Zahid told Xinhua.

He did not provide more details.

Juma Khan Taraki, a member of Ghazni Provincial Council, said launching reconstruction process in Nawa would remain a challenge for government as it would take more time than expected to reopen schools and build clinics to serve the people.
