Three deaths have been reported in the chaos surrounding Kabul airport
But six days after their capture, the political future of Afghanistan worries the international community more than the expulsion of thousands of Afghans in total chaos. This Saturday, the roads leading to Kabul airport continued to be congested. Despite several days of failure, thousands of families still gathered in front of the airport, hoping to miraculously board a plane. In front of them, US troops and Afghan Special Forces searched for them to prevent them from occupying the premises.
Behind them, the Taliban were accused of arresting Afghans serving in NATO and forbidding them access to the airport where they wanted to leave at any stage.
Thousands tried to flee the Taliban regime, according to footage taken by reporters on Saturday after the bodies of at least three people were found suffocated outside Kabul airport. Images from the UK news channel Sky News show soldiers covering three bodies with white canvases. It is not clear how they died. Sky correspondent Stuart Ramsay, who was at the airport, said those in front of the crowd were “crushed” and that doctors were rushing from one injured person to another. These pictures show that many more were injured.
Threats at the airport

As the work week resumed on Saturday in Afghanistan, authorities prevented the Taliban from returning to work in public buildings, many of them said. “I went to my office this morning, but the Taliban at the entrance told me he had not been ordered to reopen,” said Hamdullah, a Kabul official. “They told us to watch TV or listen to the announcement of returning to work on the radio,” he added.
The Taliban closed all roads to the ministry. They do not allow anyone to enter the building, ”said an Afghan foreign ministry official. One of them told me to wait until the new minister and his directors are appointed. “
“They sent us home,” an official from Kabul Town Hall confirmed. “I came in with a lot of confidence, but was disappointed. Since the Taliban came to power on August 15, government buildings, banks, passport offices, schools and universities have been largely closed. Only a few private telecommunications companies have been operating in recent days.
