France to stop Afghan airlifts on Friday

France will no longer be able to evacuate people from Afghanistan from Friday evening, French Prime Minister Jean Castex said. “We will continue until tomorrow evening,” Castex told RTL radio on Thursday. The United States and its allies urged people to leave Kabul airport on Thursday due to the threat of a terrorist attack by Islamic State militants as Western troops rush to evacuate as many as possible before the August 31 deadline. Pressure to complete the evacuations of thousands of foreigners and Afghans who helped Western countries during the 20-year war against the Taliban has intensified, with all US and Allied troops due to leave the airport next week.
