Taliban playing ‘cat and mouse’ with people attempting to flee Afghanistan

Minister for Veterans Affairs and Defence Personnel Andrew Gee says the unfolding situation in Afghanistan is “very touchy”, with people having to play “cat and mouse” with the Taliban.

“We know that the Taliban is dragging people out and interrogating them, trying to find out who’s been working with western and allied governments," Mr Gee told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

“We know that threats have been made by the Taliban, so it is a very very concerning situation.

“It is quite frankly a harrowing situation for many really good people in Kabul, and around Afghanistan.”
