Sky News reporter Stuart Ramsay accuses the UK military of covering up Kabul chaos as he is flown out of Afghanistan on ‘MoD orders’
Sky News’ Stuart Ramsay has recounted how his team was ‘ejected’ from Kabul, claiming the move was made ‘on MoD or Whitehall orders’ to prevent filming of the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
The outlet’s chief correspondent had been reporting on the desperate attempts of thousands to flee the country after the Taliban took control of the capital on August 15.
In an article for Sky News, written before the evacuation area was hit by two explosions on Thursday, Ramsay recalled being ‘kicked out’ of a British evacuation base.
‘The operational commanders wanted us to stay to the very end and leave with them, but the orders to remove us came from the MoD or from Whitehall, or both,’ Ramsay wrote.
‘We had fought to stay for days but ultimately we found ourselves on a military base and we were being ejected – there is nothing you can do.
‘It was all conducted in a cordial manner, but we WERE kicked out.
