Officials say a suicide bombing outside of Kabul, Afghanistan’s airport has killed several U.S. Marines and soldiers. Fox News reports that a second explosion later took place outside the Baron Hotel.
Governor Tate Reeves, some of Mississippi’s Congressional Delegation and other state leaders are reacting to the tragic developments:
Please pray for the grieving families of American service members and allies. We must come together in this moment and provide solidarity in support of our troops, demand better from our nation’s leaders, and pray for God’s almighty protection.
