Intelligence Reports Suggest Terrorist Attack At Kabul Airport Increasingly Likely

Concerns about a terrorist attack at Kabul airport are growing.

Many people are being taken from Afghanistan to Qatar, with refugees housed in accommodation built for the upcoming World Cup.

Meanwhile a security expert is warning that any Irish citizen who has yet to make it to Kabul Airport is unlikely to get out of Afghanistan by the August 31st deadline.
That's the date when US President Joe Biden has committed to withdrawing American troops.
More than 10,000 people are waiting at Kabul airport, desperate to leave following the Taliban takeover.
36 Irish citizens are still in the country, with Army Rangers trying to get them on flights out.

Security and Defence Analyst, Declan Power, says it's likely contingency plans are being made in case they can't be evacuated in time
