US Drine strike  hits car filled with explosives

A U.S. military drone strike blew up a vehicle laden with explosives in Kabul on Sunday, a Defense Department official said, hours after President Biden had warned that a terrorist attack against the Afghan capital’s airport was “highly likely.”

The strike eliminated “an imminent ISIS-K threat to Hamad Karzai International airport,” U.S. Central Command, Capt. Bill Urban said, referring to the Islamic State Khorasan group. “Significant secondary explosions from the vehicle indicated the presence of a substantial amount of explosive material.”

Captain Urban said the military was trying to determine whether the strike had injured civilians. A senior military official said it was confident no civilians were in the targeted vehicle but acknowledged that the secondary explosions may have caused damage.
