An Afghan filmmaker recorded her flight from Kabul as Taliban forces moved in on Sunday, begging for help on social media, saying the militants were "coming to kill us."
"The Taliban entered Kabul, unfortunately, and we were detained," Sahraa Karimi said in an Instagram video posted on Sunday. "Pray for us."
The terrifying video, with sirens sounding in the background, shows Karimi, the director-general of the state-run Afghan Film, running through the streets of Kabul as Taliban forces took the city.
The woman also took to Twitter to beg for help. "Taliban surrounded Kabul," she wrote. "I went to the bank to get some money, they closed and evacuated. Please pray for us, I am calling again," she said.
"Hey ppl of this big world, please do not be silent. They are coming to kill us."
President Biden pulled out US troops following a twenty-year war just before the Taliban forces moved through Afghanistan, taking over the capital.
Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country too.
Kamiri tweeted: "It was morning. The morning is darker than the night. A morning full of despair; morning with a world of pain."

Her tweets resonate with the darkness Afghan civilians are feeling.
"I want to shout every day: curses to the day that the world, insiders, and strangers are stabbing from all sides; That displacement, homelessness, and door to door is our destiny. They killed, took, ate, and sold. We were left, alone, helpless, hopeless, hopeless," another tweet read.
"The sky of Kabul, which was silent in the evenings at night," she wrote. "And the summer evening breeze forced you to open the window and leave your face in the cool breeze of living at home, is now full of the sound of helicopters, warplanes.
"This is the side of the shootings that breaks people's hearts," she added. "We are sold."
"It was sad to see the scene of the airport, the influx and the begging of the people," she wrote on another Instagram post, showing the tragic scenes of people huddled together trying to flee the country.
And civilians are continuing to flee as The Taliban forces settle in.
