Hostage scared for a thousand Afghan allies
The chilling warning came as Boris Johnson said he felt “deeply sorry” for those behind him and for “changing the sky and the earth” to get people out of Afghanistan after the August 31 deadline. “
The UK has so far evacuated more than 14,500 Afghans and British nationals as thousands have gathered at Kabul airport over the past 12 days in hopes of surviving the Taliban’s takeover.
But 150 British citizens and 1,100 Afghan helpers will miss the final airports once the gates close.
MP Tom Togandhat, chairman of the Select Committee on Foreign Affairs, said Afghan allies were literally in danger of losing their lives after being left behind.
He told Sky News.“We are likely to face the biggest hostage crisis the UK has ever seen.
At the beginning of the process it was said that there are more than 3,000 people in Afghanistan, I don’t know how many there are now, but we will ask about it.
