Update: British student stuck in Afghanistan on holiday evacuated to safety



A British student who claimed he was stuck in Kabul after going on holiday to Afghanistan 'because it was dangerous' has been 'evacuated'.


Miles Routledge, 21, said he had been abandoned by the British Embassy in the Afghan capital and was hiding in a United Nations safe house following several failed attempts to escape the city.


Mr. Routlege, rom Birmingham had visited the country thinking it'll be safe to visit because the country would not fall to the Taliban for several months.


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


The Loughborough physics student has now shared an update, saying he has been rescued from Taliban territory and had been able to catch a flight to Dubai.Latest Post
