TALIBANS CELEBRATE AS THE LAST US MILTASRY FLIGHT LEAVE KABUL AIRPORT

AFGAN-099423af

The last US military flight has left Kabul airport, marking the end of a 20-year presence in Afghanistan and America’s longest war.

Officials said the last C17 aircraft took off with the US ambassador onboard after midnight local time today.

They added that the diplomatic mission to assist those unable to leave before the deadline would continue.

Celebratory gunfire by the Taliban was heard after the last plane departed.

The aircraft’s departure was the final chapter in a contentious military effort, which eventually saw the US handing Afghanistan back to the very Islamist militants it sought to root out when American troops entered the country in 2001.
