breaking news 2x1

Officials at the US Embassy in Kabul warned citizens to leave the airport due to a "specific, credible threat" on Saturday.

"US citizens should avoid traveling to the airport and avoid all airport gates at this time," a press release said.

Earlier on Saturday, President Joe Biden said another attack at the Kabul airport is "highly likely in the next 24-36 hours."

Around 170 Afghans and 13 US service members were killed after an explosion carried out by ISIS-K on Thursday near the airport.

The Biden administration retaliated on Friday carrying out a drone strike against ISIS-K.
