Soldiers from the Taliban's Badri 313 unit are seen on the streets of the Afghan capital on Sunday. Named after the battle of Badr 1,400 years ago, when the Prophet Mohammed supposedly vanquished his enemies with only 313 soldiers, the Taliban unit could number up to several thousand men, experts say.
