Relatives claim bodies in Kabul hospital

Numerous victims of the bombing were also seen recovering at the hospital, after two blasts and gunfire rocked the area outside the airport on Thursday evening, witnesses said.

At least one Islamic State suicide bomber killed around 85 people in the attack, with some 13 U.S. soldiers amongst the dead.

Islamic State (ISIS), an enemy of the Islamist Taliban as well as the West, said one of its suicide bombers targeted "translators and collaborators with the American army".

It was not clear if suicide bombers detonated both blasts or if one was a planted bomb. It was also not clear if ISIS gunmen were involved in the attack or if the firing that followed the blasts was Taliban guards firing into the air to control crowds.
