JUST IN | Reports of Explosion outside Kabul, Afghanistan airport – 3 American troops reported to have been injured;
It’s not clear how many people are potentially injured or killed. Last night, there were 5,000 Afghans and Americans outside Abbey Gate at the airport.
- This explosion, again, it’s unclear how big, comes hours after the State Department warned Americans outside the gates of the Kabul airport to “leave immediately” due to the increasing terrorist threat.
- A total 5,200 U.S. troops currently remain at Kabul’s airport, down from a peak of 5,800 a few days ago, Fox News has learned.
- The U.S. military mission is likely to end in Kabul in the next three or four days, officials say.
- Evacuation flights also are beginning to slow down. More than 13,000 evacuated yesterday — but that is down 6,000 from the day before, according to the latest Pentagon stats.
