The Taliban has welcomed the tweet by President Donald Trump pledging for U.S. troops in Afghanistan to return home before the end of the year, amid concerns that such a move could jeopardize the deal agreed earlier this year aimed at ending two decades of conflict.
Just hours after Trump’s national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, had said that U.S forces in the country would be halved to 2,500 by early 2021, Trump tweeted on Wednesday: “We should have the small remaining number of our BRAVE Men and Women serving in Afghanistan home by Christmas!”

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, better known as The Mountain in “Game of Thrones”, has welcomed his first son with wife Kelsey Henson.
Henson gave birth to their baby boy on Sept. 26, as per the actor’s Instagram post yesterday, Sept. 28. The proud father also recalled the day of his son’s birth alongside photos of the two of them in sweet moments with Henson.

An eventer who went into labour while attending a show has welcomed a healthy baby son, having made it to the hospital in the nick of time.
Cheshire-based Bonnie Fishburn had been at a show four miles from home with her husband Tom Hollins and miniature Shetland pony Mr Pegs on 20 September – a week before Bonnie’s due date.

“At 6am I got up and bathed Mr Pegs for the show, didn’t tell Tom or my mum Lynn what had happened and we carried on to the show.”
Bonnie said as the morning progressed, the intervals between contractions became shorter.
