Suicide bombers attacked the Kabul international airport and a nearby hotel on Thursday, killing at least 70 people, including 12 U.S. military personnel. The violence comes as the U.S. is racing against time to evacuate American citizens, permanent residents and others from Afghanistan. An Islamic State militant group has claimed responsibility for the attacks which have caused chaos, confusion, and fear in Kabul.
