The United States is aware of approximately 100 American citizens and lawful permanent residents who remain stranded in Afghanistan and wish to leave nearly a month after the Biden administration withdrew all U.S. military personnel on Aug. 31, a senior State Department official said on Monday.

“Our highest priority in Afghanistan, of course, remains helping those American citizens who wish to leave the country now to do so,” the official said, according to a Reuters report.

The State Department continues to work to evacuate the remaining people as the administration nears 30 days since leaving Afghanistan, which is now under Taliban rule.
