Afghanistan: Evacuation is continuing despite Kabul attack, says PM

BBC News says the UK will continue its operation to evacuate people from Afghanistan despite the “despicable” attack at the capital’s airport, Boris Johnson says.

Speaking after an emergency meeting, the PM pledged the UK would be working “flat out” until “the last moment”.

But he also acknowledged the push was nearing its conclusion, with hours remaining.

Two explosions hit Kabul airport on Thursday, killing some 90 people – among them 13 US military personnel.

At least 150 people were also wounded in the attack, which the so-called Islamic State group say it was behind.
