FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “‘People are terrified”: Western groups desperate to save Afghan workers left behind • FRANCE 24″ – below is their description.

Dozens of flights already have brought hundreds of Western nationals and #Afghan workers to safety in Europe since the #Taliban captured the capital of #Kabul. Those lucky enough to be rescued from feared reprisals have mostly been Afghans who worked directly with foreign missions, along with their families. European countries have pledged to evacuate people at special risk from the Taliban — feminists, political activists and journalists — but it is unclear exactly where the line is being drawn and how many Afghan nationals Western nations will be able to #evacuate. Lawyer Magali Guadalupe Miranda talks to FRANCE 24.
