London — The British Ministry of Defense said none of Kabul’s military or government officials were among the victims of the explosion near the city’s airport early Thursday.

“No British military or British government casualties have been reported after the incident in Kabul,” the Defense Ministry said. “The British Army is working closely with our partners to provide security and medical assistance.”
