Photos appearing to show members of the Taliban in pedalos have been posted online.

Published on Twitter, the images appear to show members of the group in the watercraft along with their weapons.

Jake Hanrahan, a journalist and filmmaker, said the photos were taken in Bamyan Province – located to the east of Kabul, the country's capital city.

It comes after the Taliban said, at the beginning of the month, they had taken control of the last province not controlled by the group.
