More than two dozen students from two school districts in California are stuck in Afghanistan following the final US flight out of the country earlier this week.

Officials from the Sacramento-area San Juan Unified school district told the Sacramento Bee on Tuesday that at least 24 students were stranded in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, officials from the San Diego-area Cajon Valley Union School District told KGTV that three students from one family were left behind in the country amid the Taliban takeover.

The students were in Afghanistan with their families and visiting relatives prior to the US evacuation deadline.
