US general warns of more attacks in Afghanistan, says evacuation will continue

The US general overseeing the evacuation from Afghanistan says the United States will “go after” the perpetrators of the Kabul airport attacks, if they can be found.

Gen. Kenneth McKenzie says the attacks will not stop the United States from continuing its evacuation of Americans and others.

McKenzie warns that there are still “extremely active” security threats at the airport in the Afghan capital.

“We expect these attacks to continue,” he says, adding that Taliban commanders have been asked to take additional security measures to prevent another suicide bombing on the airport’s perimeter. He says he sees no indication that the Taliban allowed today’s attacks to happen.
