U.S. soldiers help Afghan woman over airport wall

Since the Taliban entered Kabul over the weekend, scenes of chaos have unfolded as thousands seek to leave, fearing a return to the austere interpretation of Islamic law imposed during the previous Taliban rule that ended 20 years ago.

Video footage shared by a journalist working for Rise To Peace, showed large crowds near Kabul airport hoping to be evacuated.

According to an eyewitness on the ground, once people make it over the wall they still need to be processed by the U.S. consul to check they have eligible documents.
