Video has emerged of several men or youths clinging to the fuselage of a US military C-17 aircraft as it taxied at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul on Monday.
There are scores more people watching or following the plane, some of them underneath its engines. Another video shows a US military Apache helicopter swooping low over the tarmac in what appears to be an effort to disperse the crowds.
Witnesses CNN has spoken to at the airport confirmed the chaotic scenes.
It’s unclear what happened to any of the people who can be seen clinging to the aircraft.
CNN has reached out to the US military for comment.
