The World

August 09, 1989

An Afghan rebel rocket hit the largest military ammunition dump in Kabul, wounding at least five people and setting off explosions that rocked the city for hours. An official with the official Bakhtar news agency said the rocket hit the Khair Khana munitions depot, about half a mile from Kabul's airport, sending up towering flames that were visible miles away. The U.S.-backed rebels have been pounding Kabul with rockets from their positions in surrounding mountains for more than a month.
