France seeks to evacuate 'several hundred' more from Kabul – The Times of Israel

France is still seeking to evacuate hundreds more people from Afghanistan, ahead of a looming deadline, President Emmanuel Macron says, warning of an “extremely risky” situation, in the wake of blasts around Kabul airport.
“We will do everything we can” to bring to France Afghan citizens and dual nationals who were in the French embassy, and are currently outside the perimeter of the airport in 20 buses, Macron says on a visit to Ireland.
“We are talking about several hundred people who are still in danger,” he says. “I cannot guarantee you today that we will be able to carry out these operations, because the security situation is not under our control.”
As The Times of Israel’s environment reporter, I try to convey the facts and science behind climate change and environmental degradation, to explain – and critique – the official policies affecting our future, and to describe Israeli technologies that can form part of the solution.
I am passionate about the natural world and disheartened by the dismal lack of awareness to environmental issues shown by most of the public and politicians in Israel.
I’m proud to be doing my part to keep Times of Israel readers properly informed about this vital subject – which can and does effect policy change.
