Update (1040ET): According to Politico, ISIS is responsible for the blast outside the Kabul airport.
An ISIS suicide bomber was responsible for the explosion, a U.S. official and a person familiar with the situation told POLITICO.
The attack occurred just outside Abbey gate, where U.S. personnel until recently welcomed American citizens to board evacuation flights, according to four sources with knowledge of the situation.
The news comes just hours after defense officials began warning about an increased terrorist threat from the Islamic State’s branch in Afghanistan. Defense officials briefed lawmakers on Tuesday about the new threat targeting airport gates and military commercial aircraft evacuating people from Kabul, POLITICO first reported.
