12 Us Service Members Killed, 15 Injured In Suicide Attacks Outside Kabul Airport, Pentagon Says

Twelve US service members and dozens of Afghans have been killed in two bombing

attacks outside Kabul’s airport, according to the Pentagon and Afghanistan’s Ministry of Public Health.

The deadly blasts came as the United States and other Western countries raced to

complete a massive evacuation of their citizens and Afghan allies following the Taliban takeover of the country.

An official with Afghanistan’s Ministry of Public Health told CNN on Thursday that more than 60 people were dead and 140 wounded.

Fifteen US service members were injured in addition to the 12 dead, said Gen. Frank McKenzie, Commander of US Central Command.
