100 Danish soldiers stuck at Kabul airport

What if it was time to go home from the war, and nobody came to pick you up?
An official in Denmark says 100 Danish soldiers are stranded at Kabul airport because a transport aircraft did not arrive to pick them up. A spokesman for Denmark's Tactical Air Command says the civilian plane was denied permission to fly through Uzbek air space to pick up the troops.
Spokesman Michael Lanteberg says the soldiers had been expected back in Denmark earlier Friday.
Lanteberg said the Danish military is "working on various solutions" to evacuate the soldiers _ who were there under NATO command _ including possible help from British and American forces.
