The United States has evacuated more than 100,000 people from Afghanistan since August 14, the eve of the Taliban’s return to power, the White House says.

“Since August 14, the U.S. has evacuated and facilitated the evacuation of approximately 100,100 people,” the White House says in a statement issued hours after Islamic State suicide bombers attacked crowds gathered outside Kabul airport hoping to flee.
