Powerful Bomb Rocks Kabul


A powerful bomb rocked Kabul Monday night – the second for the day.

Early reports indicate it was a truck bomb that was detonated close to the scene of the first explosion that happened Monday morning close to the Hamid Karzai International Airport.

TOLOnews reporter Mirabed Joyenda who is at the scene reports many people have been injured and massive damage has been caused to nearby buildings.

He said security forces have cordoned off the area. 

This comes after a suicide car bomber detonated his explosive vest near the airport in Kabul earlier in the day.

Officials said the car the bomber had been driving was also packed with explosives. However, when stopped at police checkpoint, the suicide bomber detonated his explosive vest. The explosives in the car failed to detonate.

The incident took place shortly before 11am local time.
