Afghanistan’s junior female football team to relocate to UK

The Guardian says Afghanistan’s junior female football team and their immediate families are to relocate to Britain from Pakistan after recently escaping their homeland, the government has said.

The team of about 35 young footballers, mostly teenagers, and their families – totalling about 130 people – just missed the hurried British airlift from Kabul in August, according to a UK-based charity helping them.

The squad were able to flee in small groups to Pakistan “with the assistance of some very brave people on the ground in Afghanistan”, said Jonathan Kendrick, chair of the ROKiT conglomerate, whose foundation is providing assistance.
