Washington: The US Embassy in Kabul has been evacuated as Taliban continued to take total control over the country after entering Kabul city on Sunday, officials said.

"All Embassy personnel are located on the premises of Hamid Karzai International Airport, whose perimeter is secured by the U.S. Military," US State Department spokesperson Ned Price was quoted as saying by CBS News.

Situation in Afghanistan:

Amid a growing outrage over the USA abandoning Afghanistan and Pakistan supporting the group that enforces their own radical version of Islamic law Sharia, Taliban insurgents entered Kabul on Sunday at the end of clashes and weeks of violence in various parts of the nation.

Following their entry to the capital, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani fled from the country.
