KABUL (Reuters) - The United Nations will evacuate 900 of its international staff from Afghanistan starting Thursday, citing security concerns, a U.N. source in Kabul said.
Taliban militants killed five foreign U.N. staff in an attack at their international guest house in the capital on October 28.
"The United Nations is reducing the number of its international staff from 1,300 to 400, effective immediately," the source told Reuters.
