While thousands of Afghans have tried to escape the Taliban on flights out of Afghanistan, many more are still stranded in the capital.
“I’m afraid for myself, my life, my freedom to work and to speak up”, Farzana Kochai, an Afghan MP currently stuck in Kabul, told Reuters.
“No one knows where we’re going and where this will end up”, Ms Kochai added.
The Taliban also present a direct threat to anyone who has worked with Western countries which fought against the extremist group over the past 20 years.
From a rooftop in Kabul, a man whose name has been withheld for security reasons, said he and his family are hiding underground until they can be safely evacuated from the country. He says he was an employee at a German Army base in Afghanistan and is now in danger.
“There’s no army, no police at the stations, their cars are all empty, and the soldiers all escaped or are hidden”, the man told Reuters.
“People are very afraid and we don’t know what will happen”, he added.
