Asia Album: Evacuation underway at Kabul airport in Afghanistan


Military aircraft from countries including Germany and the United States have been evacuating people at the Hamid Karzai International Airport after the Taliban took control of the Afghan capital on Aug. 15.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid on Tuesday said the United States should withdraw all troops and contractors before Aug. 31 deadline from Afghanistan, and no extension for the ongoing evacuation process would be possible.
