Afghans make a run for the border as Taliban promise ‘all-inclusive’ govt ‘within 2 weeks’
Arab News says thousands of Afghans made a run for the borders on Wednesday as Taliban militants cemented their grip on the country and finalized plans to form a government.
Kabul’s airport is out of action and Afghans fearful of Taliban reprisals are seeking safe passage overland into neighbouring Iran, Pakistan and Central Asian states.
At Torkham, a border crossing with Pakistan just east of the Khyber Pass, a Pakistani official said: “A large number of people are waiting on the Afghanistan side for the opening of the gate.”
