Twin brothers from Afghanistan aged just 11 have been reunited in England after being split apart during the chaotic days when the Taliban took over the country.
Afghan boy, 11, reunited with twin brother after year alone in France
An 11-year-old Afghan boy who spent a year stranded alone in France following the Kabul airport bombing is “tired but happy” after travelling to the UK to be reunited with his twin brother.
Obaidullah Jabarkhyl spent months stuck “unhappy and scared” in Strasbourg after getting separated from his parents and siblings during the Afghanistan evacuation amid the Taliban takeover last August.
His twin, Irfanullah, made it safely to London to stay with their UK-based family while his parents and sister remained in their home country.
On Wednesday, his wait finally came to an end and he was tearfully greeted by relatives including his twin in London following the approval of his visa application.
