Three Brits confirmed dead in the Kabul explosions

DOMINIC RAAB has confirmed that three Brits were among the casualties in the Kabul bomb attacks, including one child

It has been confirmed this afternoon, Friday, August 27, by the Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, that there were three British casualties in yesterday’s horrendous bomb attacks at Kabul airport, including one child, with two more British citizens reportedly injured in the blasts as well.

Mr Raab said, “I was deeply saddened to learn that two British nationals and the child of another British national were killed by yesterday’s terror attack, with two more injured. These were innocent people, and it is a tragedy that as they sought to bring their loved ones to safety in the UK they were murdered by cowardly terrorists”.

He continued, “Yesterday’s despicable attack underlines the dangers facing those in Afghanistan and reinforces why we are doing all we can to get people out. We are offering consular support to their families. We will not turn our backs on those who look to us in their hour of need, and we will never be cowed by terrorists”.

ISIS-K have claimed to have been responsible for the attacks, which have so far taken the lives of almost 100 people, including US military personnel, and allegedly members of the Taliban as well, as reported by thesun.co.uk.
