Large explosion in Kabul after Obama flew out


Less than two hours after President Barack Obama flew out of Afghanistan after a surprise visit Tuesday, the US embassy in Kabul sounded its alarm after a large explosion was heard in the city, AFP reported.

“Duck and cover here at the embassy. Not a drill – avoid the area,” the embassy wrote on its Twitter page.

Obama made a symbolic trip to Afghanistan on Tuesday, arriving on the first anniversary of the killing of al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden to sign an agreement with President Hamid Karzai that marks a transition in the war while committing the US to another decade of economic and military aid.
