Suspected suicide bomber strikes outside Kabul airport with civilians and U.S. service members among the casualties



Suicide bombers detonated explosives among crowds near the Kabul Airport, killing at least thirteen people and injuring at least 60 others, including three American soldiers.



The suicide bombers are believed to have carried out the attacks close to Kabul airport where thousands of people have been desperately waiting to be evacuated out of the country after the Taliban took over.



The Taliban say at least 13 people, including children, have been killed. Dozens of others are being treated in local hospitals.



Three U.S. Marines were injured in that blast, according to three U.S. military officials.



The explosion came after multiple warnings of an imminent attack by the Islamic State-Khorosan (Isis-K), the Afghan branch of Isis, on crowds of desperate Afghans trying to escape the country.
