At least thirteen people, including several children, have been killed and wounded in a suicide bombing carried out by ISIS at the Kabul airport. 
A UK defense source confirmed there were two explosions at the airport, one next to the Baron Hotel, and the second by Abbey Gate. No UK military casualties were reported, according to initial assessment.

Pentagon press secretary John Kirby initially confirmed the blast at Abbey Gate outside the airport, although he could not initially provide further details.
At least 3 American Marines and other foreigners were injured and killed in the blast, an official Taliban source confirmed via Al Jazeera.
According to reports, guns were fired at one of the gates of the airport.

Following reports of the blast, the UK Defense Ministry says they are working urgently on establishing what has happened and its impact on the ongoing evacuation effort, according to Reuters. 
“We are working urgently to establish what has happened in Kabul and its impact on the ongoing evacuation effort,” the defense ministry said on Twitter.
“Our primary concern remains the safety of our personnel, British citizens and the citizens of Afghanistan. We are in close contact with our US and other NATO allies at an operational level on the immediate response to this incident.
The United States and allies urged people to move away from Kabul airport on Thursday due to the threat of an Islamic State terror attack.
