Last US planes leave Kabul airport, ending Afghanistan war

The last American evacuation flights have left Kabul’s international airport, ending the longest US war weeks shy of the 20th anniversary of its beginning.

A Taliban guard at Hamid Karzai International Airport told the Associated Press the last plane left shortly after midnight Tuesday, Afghanistan time.

There was no official US confirmation of the withdrawal’s completion, but the Pentagon was expected to hold a briefing Monday afternoon.
