London: Seven people were killed in a crowd near Kabul’s international airport amid chaos as thousands of people gathered to flee Afghanistan after Taliban Islamists took control, according to Sky News, citing the British Ministry of Defence.

According to Sky, the defence ministry stated on Sunday that “conditions on the ground remain extremely challenging, but we are doing everything we can to manage the situation as safely and securely as possible.”

The Ministry of Defence could not be reached for comment right away.

The airport has been a focal point for thousands of people fleeing the Taliban, who swept into Kabul a week ago after seizing the country in a lightning advance.
