Egyptian state media say the government has evacuated more than 40 of the country’s citizens from Afghanistan.

The official MENA news agency says a military plane carrying Egyptian citizens from Afghanistan landed in Cairo late Monday.

A local TV station showed footage for the returnees carrying Egyptian flags as they landed in an airport in Cairo. They were received by military and health officials.
