Biden admin may compel civilian airlines to carry Afghan evacuees- officials

WASHINGTON, Aug 21 (Reuters) - President Joe Biden's administration has told
U.S. airlines they could be ordered to help ferry people who have been
evacuated from Afghanistan, two officials told Reuters on Saturday.

One official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said a "warning order" was
issued to carriers on Friday telling the companies they could be used, but
no decision had been made. The news was first reported by the Wall Street
Journal.

The official said the civilian aircraft would not fly into Afghanistan, but
would instead ferry evacuees from air bases in locations including the
Middle East and Germany.
