Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
