US evacuates another 7,400 from Afghanistan  

VOA says the United States said Sunday it has evacuated 7,400 people from Kabul in the past 24 hours, even as American officials confront what Secretary of State Antony Blinken described as an “incredibly volatile situation at the airport” after the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan a week ago.

Meanwhile, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin activated the use of 18 civilian passenger jets from six U.S. airlines to help ferry Americans and Afghans from safe havens where they were staying after leaving Kabul. It is the third time in the last 30 years the U.S. has invoked use of civilian aircraft to assist the military.  

Blinken told the “Fox News Sunday” show that the latest group of evacuees, Americans and Afghans who had assisted them in 20 years of U.S. fighting in Afghanistan, left on 60 flights, with many of them headed to Mideastern countries.
