According to a US official, the deadly attack was carried out by the Islamic State organization. The Islamic State group in Afghanistan is considerably more extreme than the Taliban, who just grabbed control of the nation in a lightning strike and denounced the attack.

Despite the fact that the region was under attack, evacuation planes continued to depart from Kabul airport.
