Rest of Afghan evacuees safely arrived in S. Korea, bringing total to 390 Updated: 2021-08-27 17:03:32 KST

The second and final group of Afghan evacuees who worked alongside the South Korean mission in Afghanistan safely arrived in this country earlier this afternoon as part of Seoul's mission to rescue civilians fleeing the country following the Taliban takeover.
The group of 13 Afghans onboard a C-130 military jet from the Pakistani capital of Islamabad landed a day later than the first group of 377 evacuees due to a lack of space on the first aircraft.
The latest arrivals were tested for COVID-19 at the airport and are awaiting their test results at a temporary accommodation near the airport.
Once confirmed negative for Covid, they will head to a government-designated facility in Jincheon joining other evacuees who got there earlier this morning.
This successfully concludes South Korea's mission to evacuate 3-hundred-90 people from Afghanistan.
