Crowds pack Kabul airport tarmac as they try to flee the city

Video showed people crowding the airport tarmac in Kabul early Monday (August 16) after the Taliban entered the Afghan capital.

A source who was at the airport said there were some scuffles among people unable to get a place as departures were stopped. 

Eyewitness video purported to show people shouting inside an Istanbul-bound Kam Air plane that reportedly could not take off.

Taliban insurgents entered Kabul on Sunday (August 15) and President Ashraf Ghani left Afghanistan, saying he wanted to avoid bloodshed, bringing the Islamist militants close to taking over the country two decades after they were overthrown by a U.S.-led invasion.
