About 200 non-Afghans including American citizens are to fly out of Kabul in the first airlift since the US withdrawal and Taliban takeover, a source in Doha says.

“Not all 200 are US citizens. There are American citizens amongst the group departing Kabul to Doha,” says the source, who has been briefed on the operation.
