‘I am deeply disappointed in my government’ says US veteran as Afghanistan deadline looms

US tells citizens to avoid Kabul airport amid fears of a terrorist attack. Afghans now just have a few days to leave the country following an announcement by US President Joe Biden that he is holding to his end-of-August deadline to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan.

That has increased fears that thousands of people eligible to leave will not get out.

US veteran Matt Zeller says: “By our estimation, we are going to leave upwards of 175,000 people behind”.
