The flags will be lowered at half-mast from Friday until Monday evening.
In the United States, flags will be lowered at half-mast in memory of the servicemen who died due to the terrorist attacks at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.
“As a sign of respect, starting today, the flags of the United States will be flown at half-mast in the White House and on all state buildings and territories, at all military posts and naval bases, as well as on all naval vessels, federal government buildings in the District of Columbia, as well as throughout the United States and its territories,” Psaki said, adding that the flags will be flown at half-mast until sunset on Monday.
As a result of the terrorist attacks, at least 13 American servicemen and at least 90 Afghans were killed.
Two explosions occurred on Thursday near the Kabul airport: one at the airport gate and the other at a nearby hotel.
