The US Military says it has “dropped the mother of all bombs” on a tunnel complex believed to be used by Islamic State militants in Afghanistan.
The 21,600lb (9,800kg) is the largest non-nuclear device ever used in conflict by the Yanks.
Known as the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB), it was dropped after intelligence revealed that ISIS troops were hiding in Afghanistan after they departed Arab countries.
ISIS fighters use the tunnels to move around undetected. It is believed that the massive explosion resulted in the deaths of many Islamic State militants.
President Trump called it “Another successful job”.
