Afghanistan Kabul airport explosion causes a number of casualties | USA TODAY
An explosion occurred at the Abbey Gate of Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport leaving a chaotic and bloody scene in Afghanistan.
Explosions outside the Kabul airport Thursday resulted in “a number of U.S. and civilian casualties” as the U.S. is working to rapidly evacuate Americans and Afghan allies from Afghanistan, the Pentagon confirmed Thursday.
The Taliban government in Afghanistan said it “strongly condemns” the bombing outside the Kabul airport and said the attack occurred in an area where the U.S. is responsible for security.
