4. CENTCOM released a statement saying that a C-17 that had landed at HKIA on August 16, 2021 to deliver a load of equipment was surrounded by hundreds of Afghan citizens who had breached the airport perimeter. Faced with a rapidly deteriorating situation the C-17 crew decided to depart the airfield as quickly as possible. After the C-17 landed at Al Udeid Air Base, Qater, human remains were discovered in the wheel well of the C-17. An investigation is being conducted by Central Command on the incident.
