Desperate Afghans pass baby over razor wire to U.S. soldiers

From the surging crowd of people outside Kabul airport, an infant was lifted over the high perimeter wall and passed into the hands of an American soldier. It is not clear whether the girl was being reunited with her family within the airport premises or simply handed over to others in an attempt to get her on board a flight out of Afghanistan. Thousands of people have been trying to get to the airport and on to military and civilian flights abroad. American soldiers are stationed there to prevent the airport from being overrun during ongoing evacuations of foreigners and Afghans.
