As the Taliban established its full-fledged reign over Afghanistan, a never-seen-before chaos prevailed in the country as people, in a desperate attempt to flee their motherland, clung onto moving aeroplanes, only to plunge to their deaths moments later. The airport in the Afghan capital Kabul swarmed with hundreds and thousands of people trying to escape the claws of the Taliban to take refuge in other countries. Social media is buzzing with 'horrific scenes' from the Kabul airport that seem so unreal that people are comparing them with scenes from Brad Pitt's apocalypse movie 'World War Z'.

As per the latest reports, eight people have died at Kabul airport, with three civilians allegedly plunged to their deaths from a moving military plane. The refugees were apparently hanging from the underside of a USAF transport jet but failed to cling on as the aircraft took off. There are also videos and pictures from Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul that show hundreds of people chasing after a USAF C-17 transport jet.

'Kabul airport is like scene from World War Z'

As the 'horrid' visuals from the Kabul airport started doting rounds on social media, people started drawing a comparison of the same with a scene from the movie 'Word War Z'. One user wrote, "The scenes out of the Kabul airport really do look like the scenes from World War Z." Another tweeted, "Desperate Afghans cling to the landing gear of American transports taking off and then they fall down. Horrifying! Looks like the scene of an American World War Z!" One tweet read, "If you had shown me this clip 3 weeks ago and asked me to guess its origin, I literally would have said World War Z. No joke. That’s how bad this is." Another user commented, "The videos from #Afghanistan clinging to US Air Force plane as it takes off were horrific. It looked like scenes from World War Z. But honestly, after 20 years nothing has changed, it's time we leave the place & focus on OUR own country."



 



 



 



 



 

 

But some people condemned the act and called the comparison 'inhumane'. One user wrote, "Stop comparing Afghan people trying to flee Kabdul to World War Z. Its disgusting and dehumanizes people who are fearing for their lives." Another tweeted, "World War Z is trending because westerners are disgusting assholes who dehumanize the populations they victimize." One tweet read, "Also the fact that people are making World War Z jokes over a legit humanitarian crisis is beyond sickening."
