Kabul airport under attack

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Insurgents launched a pre-dawn attack on Afghanistan's main international airport in the capital, Kabul, on Monday, police said, with explosions and gunfire heard coming from an area that also houses major foreign military bases. There were no immediate reports of casualties and there was also no early claim of responsibility for the attack. Attacks on the heavily guarded airport, used by civilians and the military, are relatively rare and would represent an ambitious target for insurgents, with recent assaults staged against less well-protected targets. The airport, by comparison, is home to a major operational base for NATO-led forces that have been fighting Taliban and other insurgents for 12 years and is bristling with soldiers and police, guard towers and several lines of security checkpoints. Police said the attack appeared to be centred on the military side of the airport, to the west of the civilian terminal.
