The president and first lady Jill Biden met in solemn privacy Sunday at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware with the families of the 13 U.S. troops killed in the suicide attack near the Kabul airport.
President Joe Biden is warning that it’s “highly likely” an Islamic State affiliate will try another attack in Afghanistan.
American forces working under heightened security and the threat of another attack are racing to complete the evacuation from Kabul’s airport, the day after a suicide bombing at the gates wrote a devastating final chapter to the war in Afghanistan.
U.S. officials say 12 U.S. service members were killed, including 11 Marines and a Navy medic in an attack in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Russian officials says twin suicide bombings have struck outside Kabul’s airport, killing at least 13 people. Western nations had warned earlier in the day of a possible attack at the airport in the waning days of a massive airlift.
