Brits told to avoid Kabul airport and head to border over ‘high threat of terror attack’

The Daily Mirror says: The Foreign Office has updated its travel advice for Afghanistan to warn UK nationals not to travel to Kabul airport due to an “ongoing and high threat of terrorist attack”.

Desperate efforts to airlift people out of the country are ongoing as the August 31 deadline looms.

The situation at Hamid Karzai International Airport has been treacherous and at times deadly in recent days.

UK troops are working round the clock to airlift nearly 2,000 Afghan interpreters and other staff who worked for Britain still in the country.

They have been assessed as eligible under the Afghan relocations and assistance policy (Arap) and have passed security checks but remain on the ground.

More than 10,000 people have been evacuated by British forces so far, according to the Ministry of Defence.
