FeaturedNews Short: With Looming Deadline, Evacuations Continue In Afghanistan

As the U.S. government continues its evacuations from Afghanistan before the August 31 deadline, about 1500 still remain. Since the Taliban were able to seize control of the country in mid-August, approximately 4500 U.S. citizens have been safely evacuated from the Kabul airport. As of Wednesday, approximately 19200 have been hurried out, with thousands more waiting their turn. The airport, according to foreign sources, may no longer be safe. Since two bombings have already been reported within the airport’s vicinity, another within the vicinity of or within the airport itself, is not out of the realm of possibility.
