A day after conquering Afghanistan's capital city, Kabul, Taliban fighters enjoyed amusement park rides on Monday. Videos of the incident were widely circulated on the internet. Some armed with weapons, Taliban militants, can be seen riding on the electric bumper cars in the footage. They can be seen riding tiny merry-go-round horses in another video.
These videos are in addition to those that have surfaced on the internet, in which civilians attempting to leave Afghanistan following the Taliban's takeover are shown sprinting alongside and clinging to a US Military Aircraft on the Kabul airport's runway. The footage also showed that two passengers hanging to the plane's exterior perished after falling off it after it took off. The video quickly went popular on social media.
Over 150 Indians have been evacuated safely from Afghanistan in a recent development, where Taliban militants have deposed the elected government.
Among those evacuated was the Indian Ambassador to Afghanistan Rudrendra Tandon, embassy officials and their families, Indo-Tibetan Border Police officers, and journalists covering the fighting.According to a source, the IAF transport aircraft C-17 Globemaster, which took out from Kabul at 7 am on Tuesday, would initially arrive at Jamnagar airfield.
On Sunday, the Taliban stormed Kabul and seized over the presidential palace, prompting Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to escape the country, apparently with four cars and a helicopter load of cash. After United States President Joe Biden began withdrawing American soldiers from Afghanistan after 20 years of service, the Taliban started making significant progress. Joe Biden has set August 31 as the date for all American soldiers to leave Afghanistan.
