Norwegian police personnel has been sent to Kabul to assist in the evacuation work, the Ministry of Justice stated on Monday.

“I can confirm that the Norwegian police are part of the force sent to the airport in Kabul to help with the work going on there,” State Secretary Lars Jacob Hiim in the Ministry of Justice and Emergency Management said.

He added that the police would help clarify the identity of people who are to be evacuated to Norway. 

“For the sake of safety, I can not go further into what kind of tasks will be performed or how many personnel will be there. It will be an important contribution to the operation that is now underway,” Hiim stated.
