The 256 troops from the 16th Air Assault Regiment arrived as armed forces chief General Nick Carter said British troops will end their evacuation of civilians from Afghanistan on Saturday.
 
 A suicide bomb attack on Thursday (August 26) claimed by Islamic State on the crowded gates of Kabul airport killed scores of civilians and 12 U.S. troops, throwing into mayhem the airlift of tens of thousands of Afghans desperate to flee. 
 
The Taliban seized power in Afghanistan earlier this month from a U.S.-backed government, sending thousands fleeing and potentially heralding a return to the militants' austere and autocratic rule of two decades ago.
