UK troops desperate last stand to rescue 6,000 Brits as Taliban seize Kabul

The Mirror says: Helicopters buzzed over Kabul evacuating British and US citizens as the Taliban entered the capital, completing their terrifying takeover of Afghanistan.

 

As British and US troops made a desperate last stand at Kabul airport, where thousands were waiting to flee, our PM Boris Johnson was larking around with Olympians in London and Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab was cutting short a holiday abroad.

The Taliban’s takeover has triggered global fears of a rise in terrorism and the rebirth of al-Qaeda as well as leaving Afghans facing a terrifying future of oppression and brutality.

As the 20-year war came to its humiliating end, British ambassador Sir Laurie Bristow was among about 6,000 Brits, including embassy staff, aid workers and NGO employees, being evacuated.
