US military seen guarding part of Kabul airport
US military have set up a border at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, guarding something like a piece of the rambling complex.
A few recordings shared via social media shows razor wire has been laid to keep down to many individuals frantic to leave Kabul. American soldiers can be seen standing guard behind the razor wire.
It’s still muddling how much of the airport the US military is controlling.
On Sunday, the US Department of State reported that US forces would take over air traffic control at Kabul airport, saying that troop presence at the airport would be increased and expanded to 6,000.
