A US lawmaker has accused the Taliban of stopping Afghans and Americans from leaving Afghanistan via Mazar-i-Sharif International Airport, APA reports citing BBC.
Republican House member Michael McCaul said on Sunday that planes had been trying to leave the airport "for the last couple of days".
An NGO confirmed to the BBC that it had people waiting to board one of the flights.
The Taliban has denied the claims, labelling them as propaganda.
Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told the BBC: "This is not true. Our Mujahideen have nothing to do with ordinary Afghans. This is propaganda and we reject it."
Mr McCaul, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told Fox News there were six planes carrying American citizens and Afghan interpreters waiting at the airport.
