Afghanistan: UK and Taliban in talks over further evacuations

BBC News says the UK is in talks with the Taliban to secure safe passage out of Afghanistan for a number of British nationals and Afghans who remain there.

The talks, involving UK officials and “senior” Taliban members, are taking place in Doha, Qatar, No 10 said.

The defence secretary is understood to have told MPs that between 150-250 people eligible for relocation – plus their families – remain in the country.

It comes after a Taliban pledge to allow further departures.
