US strikes suicide bomber in vehicle headed to Kabul airport, rocket attack kills child in airport neighbourhood: Reports

A U.S. airstrike targeted a suicide bomber in a vehicle that was headed to the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, in the midst of the final days of a massive military evacuation effort of Americans and allies from Afghanistan, The Associated Press reported, citing a Taliban official. 

The airstrike came the same day of a report of a rocket attack in a neighborhood Northwest of the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul that killed a child, according to an Afghan police chief.

Just days ago, 13 U.S. service members were killed in a suicide bombing at an airport gate in which a faction of ISIS was said to be responsible.

The blast was heard in the Afghan capital Kabul just hours after US officials warned of the possibility of a terror attack, asking all Americans to leave the outer vicinity of the airport.

A security official from the recently deposed government said that “initial information shows hit a house.”
