ICYMI – Desperation at Kabul airport and tropical storms in New England
Tales of rescue and escape poured in from Afghanistan last week as the Taliban secured control of the country. Crowds of people continue to wait outside Kabul Airport despite gunfire and stampedes in the area, which have already killed 20 people. Reuters expert fact-checkers are hard at work analyzing the countless videos and images from Afghanistan and are committed to bringing you real stories you can trust.
In contrast to the thousands fleeing their home in Afghanistan, residents across New England in the US were told to “stay home and stay safe” as the region braced themselves for Hurricane Henri which made landfall on Saturday. Even with winds up to 60 mph, the storm appeared to lose steam as it neared the coast, but officials are warning residents to remain on high alert.
