Taliban to allow 200 Americans and other civilians to leave Afghanistan on flights today

The Daily Mirror: The Taliban will allow 200 US and other civilians to leave Afghanistan on chartered flights today, a US official has said.

 

The confirmation comes nine days after the final deadline for the US evacuation of the country lapsed.

Some 1,000 people are said to be stuck at an airport in Afghanistan amid claims the Taliban was keeping them “hostage until their demands “are met”.

An unnamed source blamed the US State Department over its failure to tell the Taliban of its approval for flight departures from the airport or validate a landing site.

Now, the Taliban have allowed some of the evacuations after being pressed by US Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad, said an official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The departures were expected on Thursday.
