Afghanistan-Taliban crisis: US President Joe Biden will address the nation tonight, in wake of the recent developments in Afghanistan. This comes a day after the Taliban took control of the war-torn country.
"I will be addressing the nation on Afghanistan at 3:45 PM ET today," Biden wrote on Twitter.
According to senior U.S. military officials, the chaos at the airport left seven people dead Monday morning, including some who fell from a departing American military transport jet.
The White House says Biden will travel back to Washington from the Camp David presidential retreat to speak at 3:45 Monday afternoon from the East Room. It will be his first public remarks on the Afghanistan situation in nearly a week.
