The fall of Kunduz, if only for a few days, was a symbolic triumph for the Taliban, who have just launched a spring offensive in Afghanistan.
The Taliban say they stalled their Kunduz assault thismonth, because they had captured four 'important points' outsidethe city and wanted to avoid harming civilians.
'Local residents are now gradually leaving for safer placesand the moment our fighters get approval from centralleadership, they will start (the) advance,' said the group'smain spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.

Uncertainty over which side has the upper hand lingers inthe streets of Kunduz, where memories of last year's deadly routare fresh.
Nearly 300 civilians were killed in the mainfighting, which lasted from April to October, according to the most conservative estimates.
'This is not how normal life should be,' said Jawad Azadzoy,whose cousin was wounded when a makeshift bomb went off outsidehis shop in downtown Kunduz on Monday.
'Life has not been normal for a long time.'
Masoom Baha, a senior doctor at the city's public hospital,said medical staff were barely able to keep up with casualtiesof the fighting, mainly from rockets and artillery fire.
Adding to the strain on emergency services, a U.S. airstrike in Kunduz on Oct. 3 killed 42 people and destroyed ahospital run by Medecins Sans Frontieres, in what the U.S.military has since called a 'tragic mistake'.
To prevent the city from falling again, Afghan troops havetried to secure main roads leading into Kunduz, includingHighway 3 to the east, after supply lines were cut during the2015 siege, slowing efforts to regain control.
Taliban fighters maintain strongholds close to thethoroughfares, however, and during recent skirmishes, somepolice checkpoints on Highway 3 were overrun.
