At the beginning of Tuesday morning, the Portuguese was with another citizen of the country, also a firefighter and who also provided support at the airport. In the meantime, he was recalled by a flight to Qatar.

There were four more Portuguese in Kabul on Monday. One of them, Paula Pedro, described moments of tension in her statements to SIC. A Portuguese woman and another Portuguese were detained because the plane on which they were going to fly to Dubai could not land at the airport. The airstrip was invaded for hours by hundreds of desperate Afghans who tried to escape and find a seat on the plane.

The airport did not open until late Monday evening.

On Sunday, the introduction of Taliban forces into Kabul ended a two-decade military campaign led by the United States and supported by its allies, including Portugal. Islamic radicals have seized the capital and power, wanting a transfer of power after the Afghan president left the country.
