NATO says helping keep Kabul airport open for evacuations amid reported attacks

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg says the alliance is working to keep Kabul airport running, as foreign powers rush to evacuate staff after the Taliban closed in on power.

“Spoke with UK PM Boris Johnson and the foreign ministers of our allies Canada, Denmark and Netherlands on the situation in Afghanistan. NATO is helping keep Kabul airport open to facilitate and coordinate evacuations,” Stoltenberg writes on Twitter.

There have been multiple reports of attacks on the airport and of chaos, as thousands scramble to board overcrowded planes.
