The Taliban’s August 31 deadline to evacuate Kabul is fast approaching, as citizens scramble to flee the brutal regime.

International correspondent for Denmark’s TV 2 Simi Jan has been stationed beside the airport for a week now.

“I have been covering wars and conflicts for years … but the desperation and that I see now is just horrific,” she told Jim Wilson.

“There’s thousands of people cramped together; the other day I saw the dead bodies of two, because people get crushed.

Ms Jan said Afghanistan will lose a whole generation of educated young people, fleeing because they can’t see a future for themselves.

“This is a countdown, and … we only have a week left.”
