8:09 am
a way out. people are flocking to passport offices in capital to plan their exit either be a very veteran about a possible return of the taliban, so we want to leave the country before the situation gets worse. from all of your, most districts have fallen. there's not a single district without fighting. they've even reached the chief of police and office and provincial capital. i've come here to get my passport and get out of a found the stone not safe for the soldiers of the african national and different forces. that's not an option. some field, a country is finally their own and they intend to hold it, keeping the taliban at bay on this land belong to you when the russians were here and they left than the americans came and now they have left. this country is ours and be, be protected even without bay or equipment. meanwhile,
