Afghanistan: Soldier who went viral after he was pictured cradling a baby over wall in Kabul airport says the photo ‘sums up what troops are doing’



A British soldier seen cradling a baby amid the chaos at Kabul airport has said the viral image shows what soldiers are doing ‘on a daily basis’ to help families flee the Taliban in Afghanistan.


The corporal in the UK Parachute Regiment was filmed by Sky News holding the baby last week and the image trended around the world.






The unnamed soldier (for security reasons) has now come out to say the emotional scene ‘sums up what the guys are doing’ to assist thousands in escaping Afghanistan amid fears the airport could become a target for bombings by the militants.
