The General Directorate of Physical Education and Sports in Afghanistan posted on Facebook: “Anwari, like thousands of Afghan youths, wanted to leave the country but fell off a US plane and died.”

The desperate scenes playing out in Kabul have stunned the world. Footage of men clinging onto military planes departing the airport have shown just how fearful many Afghan’s feel about the Taliban taking over.
