Evacuation underway: 11 of the 35 Swiss nationals have left Afghanistan so far. This was announced, Friday evening, by the crisis director of the external department, Hans-Peter Lenz (63). One person has now arrived in Switzerland. In addition, eight of the 40 Afghans with permanent residence permits in Switzerland would have left – almost all of them via Kabul airport.

The situation is even bleaker for the local staff who worked for the Swiss Cooperation office in Kabul and their families. Unfortunately, none of the 233 people were able to leave Kabul, said Hans-Peter Lenz. Only one local person has arrived at Kabul airport so far.
