A Taliban official has said that at least 11 people have been killed in the attack on Kabul airport.
The official said the number included women and children and that a number of Taliban guards had also been wounded.
There is no confirmation, reports the BBC.
ButnAfghan journalist Bilal Sarwary – who was evacuated from the country a few days ago – says that the explosion at Kabul airport occurred in a sewage canal where Afghan refugees were having their visa documents vetted.
He reports that a suicide bomber detonated his explosives in the crowd of people before a second attacker started opening fire.
