KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) Explosions could be heard early Wednesday north of the capital, in the vicinity of the airport. Large plumes of smoke were seen.
The explosions began around 2:30 a.m. and came in rapid succession, seconds apart, making buildings shudder.
There were no sounds of airplanes or anti-aircraft fire.
Officials could not be reached at the airport.
It was impossible to travel in the streets because of a nighttime curfew, from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.
