Heavily armed Taliban fighters were on patrol outside Kabul's airport Friday as evacuation flights resumed a day after Thursday's horrific scenes. The death toll from Thursday's twin suicide bombings has now risen to more than 100, including 13 US troops, the AP reports. Officials say at least 95 Afghans were killed, though the true toll could be higher. Morgues are at capacity and officials say many bodies are still unclaimed because the victims' relatives are in distant provinces. President Biden vowed Thursday night to "hunt down" members of ISIS-K, the regional Islamic State affiliate, which has claimed responsibility for the attack. More:
- US gave Taliban lists of names. Some lawmakers and military officials have been outraged by reports that American officials gave the Taliban lists of names of Americans and Afghan allies so they could get past the group's checkpoints, Politico reports. With the Taliban's history of killing collaborators with foreign forces, one defense official describes the move as putting the Afghans on a "kill list." National Security Council spokeswoman Emily Horne acknowledged that the US has "shared information with the Taliban that has successfully facilitated evacuations from Kabul."
