New Delhi: Seven Afghan civilians, including a crowd gathered near Kabul’s international airport, have been killed in the chaos that broke out after the Taliban’s occupation of Afghanistan, Britain’s military said. “Ground conditions are extremely challenging, but we are doing everything we can to handle the situation as safely as possible,” the British Defense Ministry said in a statement.
Thousands of people have gathered at the airport in an attempt to escape the Taliban’s regime after its occupation of Afghanistan. Government and private offices remained closed in Afghanistan’s capital on Sunday, just a week after the Taliban took over Kabul, with the closure of government and private offices such as ministries, passport departments and banks, causing problems for residents of Kabul. .

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Saturday that small groups of Americans and possibly others seeking to leave Afghanistan would be given specific instructions on what to do. They will be instructed to move to the points where the army can collect them.
