That hotel was reportedly used to ferry Americans to the airport. Taliban sources are telling NBC News at least 13 people were killed.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says the “barbaric” bomb attack at Kabul airport has caused “many” casualties, but that the U.K. evacuation operation in Afghanistan will continue for a bit longer.
