'I've accepted death' - British student stuck in Afghanistan on holiday says



A British national stuck in a UN safehouse in Afghanistan says he has accepted his fate and feels ‘abandoned’ as the country falls to the Taliban.


Miles Routlege, 21, from Birmingham says he visited the country because he thought it'll be safe to visit because the country would not fall to the Taliban for several months.


However, on Sunday, August 15, Taliban troops rolled into the capital, seizing power as
president Ashraf Ghani ran for his life.



Miles, whose ambition is to visit some of the world’s most dangerous places, claims he was stopped by insurgents near Kabul international airport who asked him where he was from.







He said he told them ‘Wales’ because he didn’t want to say the UK and they didn’t know where that was so let him go.



Miles, a student at Loughborough University, said he had called the British embassy but feels ignored.
