U.S. officials confirmed Thursday that the attack on Kabul’s airport appears to have been a suicide bombing and that at least three American troops were wounded.
An explosion rocked Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport on Thursday as the airlift of Americans and Afghan allies continues at a fever pitch with just days left before the August 31st deadline for withdrawal.
Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby confirmed the explosion occurred outside the airport but had little else to offer on casualties.
Thousands of Afghans have been gathered at the airport for days trying to flee the country since the Taliban takeover earlier this month. Western nations had warned of a possible attack.
