Washington: The US military could evacuate approximately 100,000 people from Afghanistan by the end of the week if they are able to maintain the pace of the last several days, Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby said during a press briefing on Tuesday.

“That’s definitely the plan,” Kirby said in response to a question about whether the Defense Department believes it can continue evacuating about 20,000 people a day, totalling roughly 100,000 possible evacuees by the end of the week.
