A whistleblower at the British Foreign Office says bureaucratic problems meant tens of thousands of Afghans were denied assistance after the fall of Kabul.

Rafael Marshal, who worked with a team that dealt with requests from Afghans at risk from the Taliban because of their links to the U.K., gave evidence to parliament's foreign affairs committee.

Tom Tugendhat is its chairman.

"I'm deeply concerned about many of the things the whistleblower has raised, including about all those at the very top of the department the whistleblower, Mr. Marshal, was dealing with -- very, very difficult situation, in which many of us were trying to get out people who had served us with enormous courage and integrity for sometimes as much as 20 years."
