First US evacuation flight since November leaves Afghanistan
The State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The departure comes the same day UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Afghanistan is “hanging on by a thread” and called for more humanitarian support for the country.
State Department spokesperson Ned price said at the time that there were a few dozen US citizens and their families who had identified themselves as prepared to depart with the necessary travel documents.
He also said there were 150 US citizens in Afghanistan who did not wish to leave.
