Seven days after the takeover of Kabul city by the Taliban, thousands of Afghans continue to crowd outside Hamid Karzai International Airport in an attempt to leave the country.
Most of the people waiting outside the airport do not have documents.
Kabul residents speaking to TOLOnews urged those at the airport without passports or documents to not create problems for those who do have proper documents.
Sayed Jawad and his six family members who are waiting outside the Kabul airport said that despite their having passports and other documents they have not been able to enter the airport.
“The foreigners have locked the doors and there is no movement into the airport,” said Sayed Jawad.
A local resident named Sadat said: “All people that you see here have a problem.”
“We tell all our brothers and sisters that nothing is happening here and to stay at home,” said Sediq Habibi, a resident of Kabul.
Footage broadcast by CBS showed Afghans faced with money problems after being moved to a military base.
The footage showed Afghans living without access to medical facilities and other services.
