Another attack on Kabul airport is highly likely, US President Joe Biden has warned, saying commanders have told him it could come as early as today.
The state department has urged all U.S citizens to the leave the area near the airport because of a “specific, credible threat”.
The US is continuing evacuations but the final UK troops, diplomats and officials have now left Kabul.
A suicide bombing near the airport on Thursday resulted in some 170 deaths.
ocal branch of the Islamic State group – Islamic State in Khorasan Province (IS-K) – claimed the attack.
In retaliation, the US carried out a drone strike on eastern Afghanistan late on Friday, saying it had killed two “high-profile” IS-K members
IS-K is the most extreme and violent of all the jihadist militant groups in Afghanistan and has major differences with the Taliban, who now control most of the country.
