How many people have been evacuated from Afghanistan so far?

The pace of evacuation from Kabul airport has been accelerating, with around 12,000 people leaving within just 12 hours on Tuesday, said the White House.

About 6,400 people were evacuated on US military flights, while coalition flights carried the remaining numbers.

In total, the US has evacuated or helped to relocate 70,700 since August 14.

However, most countries have acknowledged that it will not be possible to evacuate all those who are eligible for evacuation before the US withdraws from Kabul airport on August 31, after President Joe Biden ruled out any extension to the US presence.
