At least 13 people, including children, were killed in two explosions which blasted near the Kabul airport in Afghanistan on Thursday evening. 

Reuters news agency reports that the source familiar with U.S. congressional briefings said U.S. officials strongly believe that the Afghan affiliate of Islamic State, known as Islamic State Khorasan (ISIS-K), after an old name for the region, was responsible for these explosions. ISIS-K is opposed by the United States and the Taliban.

A U.S. official, citing initial information, told Reuters as many as 5 U.S. military personnel may have been hurt, including at least one seriously.
