Joe Biden's defended the evacuation of US troops from Afghanistan, saying the mission was an "extraordinary success".

The president's been heavily criticised for his handling of the airlift, which saw more than 120-thousand people successfully flown out of Kabul.

But between 100 and 200 Americans have been left behind.

Mr Biden's addressed the nation, and despite leaving Afghanistan, had THIS warning for Islamic State affiliate group, ISIS-K.

"We are not done with you yet.

"I firmly believe the best path to guard our safety and our security relies on a tough, unforgiving, targeted, precise strategy, that goes after terror where it is today."
