The US has said it expects Afghans with special visas not to be barred from traveling to Kabul airport.

“Our expectation is that they will be able to reach the airport,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a briefing to reporters.

She added that the US was in contact with at-risk Afghans about when to go for flights.

Earlier we reported that Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid suggested Afghans would not be allowed into the airport because of security concerns.

However, there has been confusion about whether this meant Afghans with full travel documents would be unable to leave the country.
