A U.S. official residing inside the Kabul airport told a channel that the threat hasn’t dissipated yet, there is another imminent threat of bombing at the north gates.
This comes an hour after a series of two explosions outside the Kabul Airport.
A Taliban official said at least 13 people including children had been killed and 52 wounded, while witnesses spoke of many more bodies. A surgical hospital run by an Italian charity said it was treating more than 60 wounded. The Pentagon said U.S. personnel were among those hurt.
The situation at the Kabul Airport is “not safe” for the evacuation to proceed peacefully yet the U.S. has announced that the evacuations would continue under extreme cautions.
