Suicide bomber attacks German troops near airport in Afghan capital

KABUL: A large explosion shook Kabul's international airport on Wednesday, a Reuters witness said, with police saying initial reports suggested it was an insurgent attack.

"Based on our information there was a explosion near KAIA," said deputy Kabul police chief Sayed Ghafar Sayedzada, referring to Kabul International Airport.

The airport is home to one of the Nato-led command's most important bases, the ISAF Joint Command, which is responsible for the day-to-day management of the US-led war in Afghanistan.
