First evacuation flight since US troop withdrawal takes off from Kabul

Some 200 passengers, including US citizens, have taken off from Kabul airport on the first flight carrying foreigners out of the Afghan capital since a US-led evacuation ended on August 30.

AFP correspondents have seen the evacuation flight take off for Qatar, the first since a chaotic airlift of more than 120,000 people came to a close on August 30.
