2 Bombs Detonated Near Kabul Airport, At Least 13 Dead

7:45 AM - Multiple reports say there were two explosions near the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, that killed at least 13 people.

One explosion detonated outside the airport and another at a nearby hotel that was used to ferry Americans to the airport. Both are reportedly suicide attacks. Fox News is reporting at least three U.S. troops are injured. Social media posts show many bloody and injured people near the airport. 


7:18 AM - The Pentagon is confirming an explosion outside the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. 

Press Secretary John Kirby tweeted the amount of casualties is unknown. The explosion happened hours after Americans in Kabul were advised to leave the airport immediately. The United States embassy there noted a "security threat outside the gates from the ISIS-K against the crowds that are gathered."

Word of the explosion came just after Kirby tweeted evacuations in the capital city won't finish over the next day and a half. He said they'll continue to get as many people out as possible "until the end of the mission."
