Kabul International Airport has been overwhelmed with scenes of disorder and confusion as panicked Afghan residents and foreign nationals hoping to find seats on the last flights leaving the country have dashed to the airport, with reports of several deaths after US troops were said to have fired in the air to disperse a desperate crowd of thousands.

Witnesses said at least five people were killed at the passenger terminal, where thousands of Afghans gathered in the hopes of catching a flight out of Afghanistan, following a Taliban takeover of the capital.
