A heartbreaking video showing a US Marine lifting a baby over a razor wire-topped wall at Kabul’s airport caught global attention.
The video shows the infant, its diaper slipping off, being pulled up by one arm high above a crowd of Afghans seeking to enter the airport.
It came nearly one week into the airlift to evacuate foreigners and Afghans from the war-torn country, newly controlled by the Taliban.
It put a tender edge on the tense evacuation, in which nearly 6,000 heavily armed US troops have taken control of the airport, while their long-time foe the Taliban patrol the streets outside and begin to exercise what many fear will be a harsh and anti-American rule.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the Marines were told the unidentified baby was sick and were asked to help.
