About 450 U.S.-trained Afghan pilots who fled to Uzbekistan after the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan, are now being flown from the Uzbek camp to the United Arab Emirates amid fears of retaliation by the Taliban.



A pilot told Reuters that they feared being killed if sent back to Afghanistan. Although, the terror group claimed they would not carry out reprisal killings after seizing control of the country in August.


The pilots, the most reviled members of the Afghan military who played pivotal roles in airstrikes against Taliban fighters, are being transported out of Uzebekistan, according to the New York Times.
