Explosion heard near Kabul airport amid attack warnings. US forces fly out last evacuees from the Afghan capital amid warnings of a ‘specific, credible threat’ at the airport.

The attack comes as the United States winds down a historic airlift that saw tens of thousands evacuated from Kabul’s international airport, the scene of much of the chaos that engulfed the Afghan capital since the Taliban took over two weeks ago. Joe Biden warned on Saturday that a further terrorist attack in Kabul was highly likely in the next 24 to 36 hours.

A Western security official said US forces are in the final phase of their operations with about 1,000 civilians at the airport waiting to be evacuated.
