Contrarreloj para completar el puente aéreo de Kabul

By Jordi Bou

August 25, 2021 - Tropas occidentales trabajan frenéticamente en el aeropuerto de Kabul para evacuar a un enorme número de personas luego que Joe Biden rechazó las peticiones de aliados del G7 para que mantenga tropas en Afganistán después del fin de agosto.

In one of the biggest such airlifts ever, the United States and its allies have evacuated more than 82,300 people, including their citizens, NATO personnel and Afghans at risk, since Aug. 14, the day before the Taliban swept into the capital Kabul to bring to an end a 20-year foreign military presence.

U.S. President Joe Biden said U.S. troops in Afghanistan faced mounting danger and aid agencies warned of an impending humanitarian crisis for the population left behind.

The Taliban said all foreign evacuations must be completed by August 31, and asked the U.S. to stop urging talented Afghans to leave, while also trying to persuade people at the airport to go home, saying they had nothing to fear.
