Tension as thousands flee Afghanistan after Taliban takeover.

Report has revealed that, thousands of people crowded into the Afghan capital’s airport on Monday, rushing the tarmac and pushing onto planes in desperate trials to leave the country after the Taliban overthrew the Western-backed government although, U.S. troops blasted cautioning shots as they toiled to regulate the turbulent evacuation.

The Taliban sailed into Kabul on Sunday after President Ashraf Ghani withdrew from the country, giving rise to a dramatic end to a two-decade campaign in which the U.S. and its allies had tried to revive Afghanistan.

It was reported that the country’s Western-trained security forces declined in the front of insurgency  that ripped through the country in just over a week, ahead of the planned withdrawal of the last American troops at the end of the month.

In the capital, an uneasy calm was establish, with most people lying low in their homes as the Taliban deployed fighters at major corners. There were thin reports of looting and equipped men thumping on doors and gates, and there was less traffic than usual on rarely peaceful streets. Fighters were also seen searching vehicles at one of the city’s main squares.

Fear enveloped everyone after the Taliban freed thousands of prisoners and the police simply wilted away, or a return to the kind of brutal rule the Taliban imposed when it was last in power. They raced to Kabul’s international airport, where the “civilian side” was closed until further notice, according to Afghanistan’s Civil Aviation Authority. The military was put in control of the airspace.

Meanwhile, Videos  disseminating on social media showed hundreds of people sprinting across the tarmac as U.S. soldiers fired warning shots in the air.
