JUST IN: U.S deploys 6,000 troops to Afghanistan


U.S. President Joe Biden has authorised 6,000 troops to be deployed to Afghanistan to assist in the evacuation of its citizens, allies and Afghan partners out of the country.

Speaking to the American public from the White House yesterday, Biden said the troops were working to secure the Hamid Karzai International Airport to enable their safe departure.

“Over the coming days we intend to transport out thousands of American citizens who have been living and working in Afghanistan while also continuing to support the safe departure of civilian personnel of our allies who are still serving in Afghanistan.

“The U.S. military will assist with moving special immigrant visa-eligible Afghans and their families out of Afghanistan,” the president said.
