Taliban takes control of Kabul airport


The Taliban has released a video showing how it took control of Kabul's airport after the last US plane left its runway. The takeover on Tuesday marked the end of America's longest war, leaving behind a now-quiet airfield with many Afghans still gathered outside hoping to flee the militants' rule. The final UK evacuation flight left Afghanistan on Saturday. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the number of UK residents still in the country is in the “low hundreds".
