Afghan civilians killed in clashes around Kabul airport

Date:

The British Ministry of Defense announced that seven Afghan civilians had been killed in a riot near Kabul airport as tens of thousands of people tried to flee the country even after the Taliban movement came under control.

“Land conditions are very difficult, but we are doing everything we can to manage the situation safely,” a ministry spokesman said in a statement.

The deaths underscore the frustration of many Afghans who have worked with international forces for the past two decades or in areas such as human rights and fear for their lives, as many try to bring or bring their family members into the airport.

A United Nations report has warned that the Taliban will carry out searches targeting those suspected of collaborating with the previous government, although the movement has vowed not to retaliate.

Troops from several countries, including the United States, Germany, Britain and Turkey, have been carrying out simultaneous evacuations from the airport.

U.S. forces announced yesterday that about 17,000 people had been evacuated from Kabul, while the German military said more than 2,130 people had been evacuated from Kabul.

An eyewitness told the dpa that people continue to arrive at the airport on Sunday, despite the continuing chaos and intense heat in August.

The witness said he and his family left for the airport at midnight, hoping less people would enter at the gate, but it soon became crowded again.

Several children are reported missing in a chaotic crowd outside the airport.

Locals said the ATMs in the city were empty because banks and even money changers on the black market had not worked for a week. “Everyone in the city is now complaining that they can’t take the money,” a Kabul resident said.
