Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN)  -  Taliban troops seized the center of Kunduz, a strategically important city in the north of Afghanistan, on Monday, an elected official said.
"The Taliban have overrun important parts of Kunduz city and taken control of the city center," said Shukria Paiman Ahmadi, a member of parliament who represents the area. She was in the capital, Kabul, but had spoken to people in the city, she said.
    A tweet from the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said there was "increased Taliban activity" in Kunduz.

    Earlier in the day, both Afghan and US officials downplayed the threat.
    "This time, the Taliban won't be able to capture any part of Kunduz," said Mahfoz Akbari, spokesman for the police in Kunduz, speaking to CNN by telephone.
    Akbari was referring to the Taliban's brief capture of the city in September 2015.
    A Taliban spokesman and Afghan government officials gave similar descriptions of how militants launched a pre-dawn attack on the city from four different directions.
