Breaking: US troops ‘to leave Afghanistan by 11 September’
US President Joe Biden is set to announce that American troops
will leave Afghanistan by 11 September, officials have told US media.
The US would miss a May deadline for a pullout agreed with the
Taliban by the Trump administration last year.
The pullout deadline would coincide with the 20th anniversary of the
terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in the US in 2001.
Mr Biden had previously said the 1 May deadline would be tough to meet.
This news is will be updated shortly.
