More Than 100 Afghans Evacuated To Britain From Kosovo
A group of 117 Afghans who had recently been evacuated to Kosovo have left for Britain. The evacuees, described as civilians who have worked with NATO forces in Afghanistan and their families, departed from Pristina International Airport on September 16. Kosovo has said it would temporarily house around 2,000 Afghans. There are currently around 900 Afghans in Kosovo and the government says that more will leave Kosovo in the near future -- mostly for the United States.
