The United States, Australia and the United Kingdom have urged people to move away from the international airport in Kabul due to the threat of an attack by an ISIL offshoot in Afghanistan, the Islamic State in Khorasan Province (ISKP).
The warnings on Thursday came as Western troops hurried to evacuate as many of their citizens and vulnerable Afghans as possible before a withdrawal deadline on August 31.
