– ROME, AUGUST 17 – After the two men fell into the void after clinging to a plane taking off from Kabul airport, the Washington Post reports a new victim of the desperate flight of many Afghan civilians: the corpse of a man was found in the landing gear of an American C-17 transport plane. Two sources told the newspaper that the body wedged between the trolleys temporarily rendered the plane unusable. It is the same model of aircraft on which about 640 Afghan civilians – well beyond the regular capacity – transferred to Qatar, whose photo went around the world. (HANDLE).
