A statement from the Taliban acknowledged “several explosions” that had been heard in Kabul on Thursday, attributing them to “US troops who are destroying their assets at Kabul airport.”
“Please don’t be disturbed,” the statement concluded.
The explosions had previously been mistaken for a continuation of the attacks that left some 60 dead and 140 injured. The casualties were compounded by the massive crowds attempting to grab one of the few remaining seats on an outward-bound flight.
