PM Morrison confirms hundreds evacuated from Afghanistan

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has confirmed a further four flights took place overnight, evacuating more than 450 people from Afghanistan.

"That brings to over a thousand people, together with the United Kingdom, we’ve been able to evacuate over the course of these operations," Mr Morrison said during a media conference on Monday.

"That includes not only Australians, but it includes a large number of Afghan locally-engaged employees and humanitarian visa holders that we’ve been able to get out of the country."
