Rocket Explodes at U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan on Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks

A rocket exploded at the U.S. embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Wednesday, the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Officials announced an all-clear and did not report any injuries from the incident on Wednesday, according to The Associated Press.

“An explosion caused by a rocket has occurred on the compound,” the AP reported that a message from the embassy loudspeaker said as smoke could be seen over central Kabul. The all-clear came about an hour later.

Other attacks have also occurred on the September 11 anniversary in the Afghan capital. The one on Wednesday was the first since Trump took office.
