Chaos continues at Kabul airport in Afghanistan

As chaotic efforts continue to evacuate Western troops and people fleeing the Taliban takeover, Gunfire at Kabul airport killed at least one Afghan soldier today.

The US military said Monday that no US or NATO coalition forces were injured after a brief firefight broke out at one gate into Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport.

The last week at Kabul’s airport saw images of panic and desperation as mothers handed their babies to foreign soldiers over barbed-wire walls and Afghan civilians clung to airplanes as they took off in desperate attempts to flee their country.

Six days after the takeover of Afghanistan’s capital by the Taliban, thousands of Afghans are still desperately wandering around and inside Hamid Karzai International Airport in an attempt to leave the country.

The administration is considering extending the deadline for the complete troop withdrawal beyond its original Aug. 31 date, Biden said Sunday.
