At least 13 people have been killed, including children and foreigners, in twin blasts outside Kabul airport on Thursday, a Taliban security official said.
Suspected suicide bombers struck the crowded gates of Kabul airport with at least two explosions.
The Taliban official said many Taliban guards, who are securing safety at the airport, were among the wounded.
“Our guards are also risking their lives at Kabul airport, they face a threat from the Daesh (ISIS) group,” a Taliban official said.
The Pentagon said US personnel were also among those wounded.
“We can also confirm at least one other explosion at or near the Baron Hotel, a short distance from Abbey Gate. We will continue to update,” Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby posted on Twitter.
