Departure of last Afghan evacuees from Germany to US delayed

The departure of remaining Afghan refugees from the United States Air Base Rammstein in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate to the US has been delayed due to a handful of evacuees testing positive for the coronavirus, an Air Base spokesman said on Monday.

According to the statement, the individuals will "remain isolated until they can travel safely in accordance with current health guidelines." The Air Base has not set an exact date for the departures.

The Rammstein Air Base in Germany is one of the biggest hubs for refugees flown out of the Kabul airport by the US military, following the Taliban's rise to power in Afghanistan.
