Blast comes as US security officials say American military carried out strike targeting Isis-K
A child was killed in the blast northwest of the airport, an Afghan police chief told the Associated Press. It is currently unknown if there are any other casualties.
Reuters cited two US security officials as saying that its military has carried out a strike in Kabul, targeting suspected Isis-K militants. They said they were citing initial information and cautioned it could change.
It is unclear if there is any connection with the blast reported northwest of the airport.
A Taliban spokesperson said a US air strike had targeted a suicide bomber in a vehicle who wanted to strike the airport.
It comes after at least 92 Afghans and 13 American troops were killed in a suicide attack at the airport on Thursday amid the fraught international effort to evacuate people from Afghanistan following the Taliban’s takeover.
