US Flag Lowered in New Jersey After Attack in Kabul

United States flags were lowered to half-staff across the country to honor the victims of the deadly attacks at Kabul airport on August 26 that claimed the lives of dozens of Afghans and at least 13 US service members.

This footage uploaded to the official Facebook page of the township of Washington, New Jersey, shows the flag being lowered outside their building.
