• Another 17 Belgians managed to leave Afghanistan on a Dutch plane.
• The intention is to evacuate at least 580 people through Kabul airport, including dozens of Belgians and their (Afghan) families.
• Increasing local resistance to the Taliban. Resistance leaders are gathering in North Bansjir, the only province the movement has not yet controlled.
