Taliban Authorities Are Allowing 200 Americans To Leave The Country

KABUL—Afghanistan’s Taliban authorities are allowing some 200 Americans, U.S. permanent residents and holders of other Western passports to leave the country on a flight to Qatar scheduled for Thursday, the first such departure by air since U.S. forces withdrew last month, Qatari and American officials said.

A Qatar Airways Boeing 777 landed in Kabul on Thursday afternoon, marking the resumption of international passenger operations at the Afghan capital’s Hamid Karzai International Airport. Guarded by a squad of Qatari special forces, it was expected to depart later in the day.
