Car bomb blast, firing outside US base in Afghanistan



Kabul: Militants detonated a massive car bomb and seized a building outside a main US and NATO military base in Afghanistan’s Bagram on Wednesday morning, pushing security forces to respond, officials and witnesses said.

“A car bomb explosion occurred at 5.50 a.m. local time Wednesday in Bagram district. We still cannot provide details on causalities. There is fear of possible causalities,” Nasrat Rahimi, spokesman of the Afghan Interior Ministry, told Xinhua news agency.

“We heard a huge blast in Janqadam locality in Bagram district after militants detonated a huge car bomb. A second group of militants seized a health clinic’s building, clashing with security forces and firing rocket propelled grenades (RPGs) onto the Bagram base,” a witness told local Arman FM radio.

The whole place has now been sealed off by the US and Afghan security forces, the witness added.

The blast caused a plume of gray smoke to rise above the scene. Military helicopters were hovering over the site.

Located in Bagram district of eastern Parwan province, the Bagram military base, some 50 km north of Afghan capital of Kabul, has been serving as a main US and NATO military base in Afghanistan over the past 18 years.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.


DC vs SRH Predicted Playing 11Team,Update Point Table of IPL 2020:IPL 2020.



A confident Delhi Capitals take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 11 of IPL 2020 after two morale-boosting wins. For Delhi, the South African pace duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje has looked sharp with the new ball while spinners Axar Patel and Amit Mishra have performed splendidly in the absence of Ravichandran Ashwin, who suffered an injury in the team’s first outing and is likely to miss the match against Sunrisers.

Sunrisers Hyderabad  need to click as a batting unit to post its first win of the season on Tuesday. The 2016 champions replaced the injured Mitchell Marsh with Afghanistan off-spinner Mohammad Nabi, who played a quick cameo with the bat and also bowled an economical spell later. However, with the batting unit letting them down in both outings, Sunrisers might consider bringing in Kane Williamson, who has recovered from his injury, to provide stability to the line-up. He would be coming in place of Nabi. Australian fast bowler Billy Stanlake is an option but with only four overseas slots available, his inclusion looks unlikely.

Delhi Capitals: Shreyas Iyer (c), Ravichandran Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shimron Hetmyer, Kagiso Rabada, Ajinkya Rahane, Amit Mishra, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ishant Sharma, Axar Patel, Sandeep Lamichhane, Keemo Paul, Daniel Sams, Mohit Sharma, Anrich Nortje, Alex Carey (wk), Avesh Khan, Tushar Deshpande, Harshal Patel, Marcus Stoinis, Lalit Yadav (DC Full Squad, Players’ List)
