Afghans have been attempting to flee the Taliban since the hardline Islamist group swept into Kabul on August 15 and is now attempting to build a government in Afghanistan.
According to a statement released by the British defence ministry on Sunday, at least seven Afghans were killed in crowds near Kabul's international airport as tens of thousands attempted to flee the country following the Taliban's takeover. “Conditions on the ground remain extremely challenging but we are doing everything we can to manage the situation as safely and securely as possible," the defense ministry said in a statement.
Several videos have gone viral on social media showing Afghans fleeing the Taliban, who rushed into Kabul a week ago after capturing the country in a rapid advance. A video shared to Twitter on Saturday by Barak Ravid, a Walla News reporter, showed the ongoing chaos and despair at Kabul airport.
Ravid's video, which he claimed was supplied from a Kabul-based NGO worker, showed a large gathering of Afghans pressed up against a barbed-wire barrier, with tiny children and women begging for help. "The scene at Kabul airport several hours ago per source from an NGO who is trying to get people out. Main problem is that it's impossible to pass the gates and get to the planes even if you are on an evacuees list,” Ravid wrote.
At least a dozen people have been killed and several others injured in stampedes at the Kabul airport, according to multiple reports, as Taliban fighters shoot into the air to drive away civilians anxious to flee the country.
On Saturday, the US embassy issued a new security alert, advising citizens not to travel to the Kabul airport without first receiving individual instructions from a US government official.
