VIDEO: Chaos and panic at Kabul airport as Afghans attempt to flee the capital, US troops fire shots in the air


U.S. troops, who are in charge of the Kabul airport, fired in the air to scatter the crowd, while local media reported that several people had died falling off airplanes leaving the Afghan capital.

Thousands of Afghans flooded the airport trying to board military or civilian planes to flee the country after the Taliban landed in the capital Kabul on Sunday and President Ashraf Ghani, who fled and is probably still in Tajikistan, acknowledged that the Islamists had “won”.

Kabul Airport is controlled by U.S. troops assisting in the evacuation of foreign embassies’ staff.

At least five people were killed in Kabul airport as hundreds of people tried to forcibly enter planes leaving the Afghan capital, said witnesses.
