At least 60 Afghans and thirteen US forces personnel were killed in two bombing attacks outside Kabul’s airport, international media reported quoting officials.

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 that more than 60 Afghan people were dead and 140 wounded.
