The Taliban are reported to have raised their flag above a key border post between Afghanistan and Pakistan, and claim it is now under their control.
Videos being shared on social media show the white flag fluttering above the Spin Boldak crossing near Kandahar.
Afghan officials have denied the post has fallen, although pictures on social media show the militants chatting to Pakistani border guards.
The BBC has been told the Taliban took the border crossing with no resistance.
