ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “”America’s Day Begins” – calls grow to evacuate Afghans who helped US troops to Guam | The World” – below is their description.
As the US military continues its withdrawal from Afghanistan, the Biden administration will also begin evacuating thousands of special visa applicants from the country in the coming days. Translators, interpreters and advisers who helped coalition forces over the last two decades remain at risk of being killed by the Taliban. The first batch is due to head to Virginia, but the Pentagon is yet to confirm if other locations — including the tiny US territory of Guam — will be used.
