The US and UK have warned its citizens to move away from Kabul airport and avoid travelling there due to security threats.
Both countries issued alerts late yesterday as thousands of people are still waiting inside and outside the airport waiting to fly out.
More than 82,000 have been airlifted from Kabul, which fell to the Taliban 10 days ago as countries are rushing to evacuate people by a 31 August deadline.
The Taliban have opposed extending the deadline but also promised to allow foreigners and Afghans to leave the country beyond 31 August, according to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
In an alert yesterday, the US State Department told those waiting at the Abbey Gate, East Gate or North Gate to “leave immediately”.
Earlier, the UK issued similar advice asking people there to “move away to a safe location and await further advice”. END
