US President Biden to speak on Afghan crisis ‘soon’ amid widespread condemnation

 At least five people were killed at Kabul airport as hundreds of people tried to enter planes leaving the Afghan capital on Monday. A horrific video surfaced on social media where a person was seen falling off a loaded passenger plane mid-air in Kabul. Locals said 2-3 people fell on their houses and died an immediate, tragic death.

People have been making desperate attempts to leave the war-torn country after the Taliban overthrew the Western-backed government in Afghanistan. Since all border crossings have been seized by Taliban fighters, the only way out of the country is through Kabul airport.

The Taliban swept into Kabul on Sunday after President Ashraf Ghani fled the country, bringing a stunning end to a two-decade campaign in which the US and its allies had tried to transform Afghanistan.
