    AFP journalists in Kabul said that they heard sounds of rockets flying across the city. Officials warned that the Islamic State Khorasan Province was looking to target the airport with rockets. "We know that they would like to lob a rocket in there, if they could. Now we actually have pretty good protection against that. We have our anti-rocket and mortar system," General Frank McKenzie, head of US Central Command told reporters.
