Death toll from terror attacks outside Kabul airport reaches 110

Baku, August 27, AZERTAC

The death toll from Thursday explosions in the Afghan capital Kabul claimed by the terror group Daesh/ISIS-K reached 110, according to Al Jazeera, Anadolu Agency reports.

Reporting from Kabul, Al Jazeera also said that evacuation flights have resumed.

“We have seen a number of planes take off. The number of people around the airport has grown dramatically since yesterday,” said correspondent Charles Stratford. “We have seen thousands of people scrambling up against a wall there desperate to get on the few remaining planes,” he added.

Thousands of people are waiting at the airport for evacuation, and large crowds have gathered outside the airport grounds, seeking a way inside to get a flight out.

Among the planes departing Kabul, a second flight of Turkish military personnel is due back in the capital Ankara later today.
