KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The British military says at least seven Afghans died in a panicked crush of people trying to enter Kabul's international airport.
Thousands are still trying to flee the country in a chaotic exodus a week after the Taliban takeover.
The Taliban, meanwhile, moved to confront the first stirrings of armed resistance since capturing nearly the entire country in a matter of days earlier this month.
Anti-Taliban fighters claimed to have captured three mountainous districts, and a militia commander in the only province not yet under Taliban control pledged to fight back if attacked.
President Joe Biden said 11,000 individuals were evacuated from Kabul over the weekend.
