A week ago the Taliban controlled the southern town of Musa Qala and the dozens of heroin-processing labs that were there, but on Saturday hundreds of Afghan and British troops patrolled the streets.
Musa Qala is situated in the northern section of Helmand province - the world's largest poppy-growing region and scene of the heaviest
fighting in Afghanistan this year.
Between 15 and 20-thousand people live in Musa Qala, with another 25-thousand or so residents in the outlying areas.
Militants overran the town last winter and held it for 10 months, until Afghan and British troops retook it earlier this week.
"Unfortunately Musa Qala can never be completely secure so there's a risk the Taliban will move back into the region in due course," said British officer, Lieutenant Mike Parr.
Commanders say British and Afghan troops continue to pursue Taliban and Arab fighters on the outskirts of the town, but officials have pledged that clinics, schools and a mosque will be built to let residents known that the Afghan Army and British soldiers were there to stay.
"We're seeing an increasing number of people return to the district centre, mainly men - some of them bringing children - and we've seen three or families move back in yesterday," Parr said.
He added he was looking forward to more of the population moving back in over the next week or so.
But doubts about the security situation remain - resident Habibullah Shah told soldiers he had one message if he was able to talk to their commander, the governor, any minister or even the President of Afghanistan. "Don't build us mosques - give us security," he said.
Brigadier Andrew Mackay, the commander of British troops in southern Afghanistan, wouldn't reveal how many militants were killed in the battle, saying on it was "a lot of them,"
Afghan men and boys loitered in the street on Saturday as Afghan and British troops conducted foot patrols through town.
The town's former district centre lay in ruins, shattered by the Taliban during their February attack on the town.
Inside the town's new district centre, a top Afghan army commander showed two dozen confiscated sacks of opium to the media that has been cultivated from poppies in the region.
The Taliban controlled dozens of heroin processing labs in the area, and a dozen handmade explosive devices and mortar shells also sat nearby.
The Afghan government plans to hire some 1,500 Musa Qala residents, paying them 20 US dollars a day to do cleanup work and construction, though very little of the town suffered damage in the fighting.
