LIVE: Afghanistan - Pentagon gives update on Kabul airport attack.

Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby and Air Force Gen. Glen D. VanHerck, commander, U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command, hold an on-camera briefing in the Pentagon Briefing Room.

It's after thirteen US troops and at least 90 Afghans were killed in an ISIS suicide bomb attack at Kabul Airport.

An explosion rocked the airport in Afghanistan on Thursday just hours before the evacuation deadline.

Thousands of people have gathered at the airport over the past 12 days hoping to be evacuated after the Taliban seized power.

At least 170 are dead and more than 200 wounded in the attacks, a CNN correspondent in Afghanistan has reported.

Thirteen US service members were killed, including 12 Marines and one Navy medic, while 15 were injured.
