Waiting for the 'Squad' to joyfully comment

Kabul evacuation flights take off EMPTY as Taliban close off airport and make it impossible for Western ex-pats to get through - while fighters REFUSE to let Afghans through meaning hundreds are being left behind every day

  • Tens of thousands of desperate Afghans are trying to evacuate from Kabul's airport, but are being held back by a Taliban ring of steel with barely anybody being allowed through   
  • Women were filmed begging US troops to put them on flights home, shouting 'the Taliban are coming for me'
  • But flights are taking off nearly-empty, with one German plane with space for 150 taking just seven people 
  • Another Australian aircraft, with room for 120, took just 26 as NGOs warned people cannot get to the planes
