First Foreigners Fly Out Of Kabul Since US Pull Out.

The BBC says dozens of international passengers – including United Kingdom citizens – have flown out of Kabul in the first such flight since United States forces left the country.

The Qatar Airways charter flight landed in the Qatari capital Doha on Thursday, with a second flight due on Friday.

US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, urged help with evacuations during a recent visit to Qatar.

Hundreds of Afghan citizens who had helped the US military were unable to get out in last month’s US airlift.

Reuters news agency reports that one hundred and thirteen people were on board the plane.

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said thirteen British citizens had arrived in Doha, and thanked Qatar for facilitating the flight.
