Afghanistan evacuations enter ‘most hectic, dangerous phase’ – video

The German defence minister warned of a very concrete risk of attacks at Kabul airport hours before at least one explosion near Abbey gate, an entrance to the Hamid Karzai international airport in Kabul.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer warned on Thursday morning that German officials had advised people ‘to no longer come to the airport on their own’ but only if they could reach it safely.

The German military has airlifted more than 5,200 people from Kabul so far, including 4,200 Afghans and 505 Germans
