The Intelligence Service contributed to the evacuation of Norwegian personnel in Afghanistan, the government agency told TV 2.
“To ensure that the Norwegian authorities have the best possible decision-making basis, the Intelligence Service shares ongoing information and our understanding of the situation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Armed Forces,” Intelligence Service chief Nils Andreas Stensønes told TV 2.
The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) is working on the evacuation of Norwegian personnel. Norwegian embassy staff is already out of the country.
The Armed Forces’ operational headquarters (FOH) also assisted the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the evacuation.
According to the news agency Reuters, five people lost their lives at the airport in Kabul when they desperately tried to board the planes on Monday.
