In photos: Race to evacuate from Afghanistan
The U.S. and allied countries are "working around the clock" to evacuate people from Afghanistan ahead of next week's full U.S. military withdrawal from the country, per the New York Times.
The big picture: President Biden said Tuesday over 70,000 people had been evacuated since the airlift began on Aug. 14 and that the U.S. and its allies were on pace to leave Afghanistan by the Aug. 31 deadline. He's suggested U.S. troops may remain beyond then to continue with evacuation efforts.
