US EMBASSY AND AIRPORT UNDER ATTACK IN KABUL
Explosions were heard by Reuters witnesses and there were reports of gunfire near Afghanistan’s main international airport in the capital, Kabul, early on Monday, and a police spokesman said insurgents had launched an attack.
The attack on the airport – which is also home to a large NATO-led military base – began shortly before 5 a.m. (0030 GMT), Kabul police spokesman Hashmat Stanekzai said. Explosions could still be heard several minutes after the attack began.
The attack is centered on the US Air-force portion of the airfield. Also the Counter Narcotic building which is located to the north of the airport also under attack. Militants are reported shooting from a high building into the airport.
