Joe Biden will withdraw all US troops from Afghanistan by 11 September 2021
President Joe Biden will start withdrawing all US troops from Afghanistan over the months leading up to the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
The war in Afghanistan is the longest war the US has ever fought.
Right now, there are about 3500 American soldiers in Afghanistan.
The Taliban remains a powerful force, despite two decades of effort by the US to defeat it.
The war has cost trillions of dollars and killed and injured at least 100 000 Afghan civilians.
