The giant US airlift that transported tens of thousands of Afghans to safety ended on Monday, the Pentagon said, but left tens of thousands more behind. And when the last planes left, taking with them the last American troops, the American military presence in Afghanistan vanished after 20 heartbreaking years.

Sunday’s bombing took place in a tense atmosphere, following the suicide bombing at the airport which killed at least 170 civilians and 13 US servicemen.

With the Biden administration facing fierce criticism for its planning and execution of the evacuation of tens of thousands of American and Afghan citizens, the pressure to avoid a second attack was intense. The US military said on Saturday it had killed the planner of this bombing in another drone strike on Friday night.

Family members who witnessed the explosion said that Mr. Ahmadi and several of the children were killed inside his car; others were fatally injured in rooms facing the courtyard. The family SUV, parked next to the Corolla in the tight yard space, was set on fire, as smoke filled the house.

Ms. Ahmadi, the driver’s daughter, staggered outside, choking, and saw the dismembered bodies of her siblings and family. “I saw the whole scene,” she said.

An Afghan health official confirmed that local hospitals have received several bodies transferred by ambulance from the house, including those of three children. Later Monday afternoon, a funeral was held in Kabul with the 10 coffins of the victims, several of which were closed because the bodies were so disfigured.

Among the victims was her cousin and fiance, Ahmad Naser, 30, a former army officer and US military contractor who came from Herat, western Afghanistan, in the hope of be evacuated from Kabul.
