KABUL: A blast has been reported from near Kabul airport on Sunday as the evacuation mission to fly out foreign citizens nears its end.

According to the BBC, images posted on social media show black clouds of smoke rising into the air and an official has confirmed that a blast has occurred in the area.

This blast occurred merely two days after twin blasts rocked Kabul, which killed nearly 200 people, including 13 US servicemen.

This comes as the US is on the verge of completing its exit from Afghanistan.

US President Joe Biden had on Saturday had said that another terrorist attack at Hamid Karzai International Airport is "highly likely in the next 24-36 hours." Moreover, US Embassy in Kabul had also issued a security alert for the same.

"Our commanders informed me that an attack is highly likely in the next 24-36 hours," Biden had said in his statement.
