Mexico receives fleeing Afghan journalists and their families

Eighty six media workers and their family members, who fled the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan, arrived in Mexico on Sunday (August 29), the government said.

Most of the refugees worked for The Wall Street Journal in Afghanistan, according to the Mexican government.

They were the third group to arrive at Mexico City’s international airport since widespread evacuations have begun in Afghanistan.

Last week, Mexico received another group of 124 refugees, including New York Times journalists.

In the past two weeks, the United States and their allies have taken about 114,400 people out of Afghanistan, including foreign nationals and vulnerable Afghans who fear persecution under Taliban rule.
