Taliban official denies reports of kidnapping foreigner Kabul Airport

Kathmandu : A Taliban official has denied reports that a foreign national was abducted near Kabul airport on Saturday.

The official said a US led rescue team was still working at Kabul’s airport and that reports of abductions were just rumors.

“The abduction report is a rumor. Taliban members are helping all foreign nationals gain access to the airport. We are determined to provide safe passage for all foreigners to reach the airport,” Taliban spokesman Ahmed Ullah Wasek told local news agency Itallatroz.

He said on Saturday that the Taliban would help about 150 Indians enter the airport safely.

Thousands of Afghans fled the country to Kabul airport shortly after the Taliban seized control of the Afghan capital on Sunday. A local Farhad Mohammadi said three flights on Saturday morning rescued a man trying to leave Afghan territory. About 5,000 US troops have been deployed at Kabul airport to assist in the flight process.

At least 12 people have been killed in a stampede and shootings at an airport in the space of a week. The situation in Afghanistan is tense after the Taliban seized most of the country in a month’s time.
