Bombings at Kabul airport questions a new wave of extremism
Last night at Kabul’s International Airport in Afghanistan, suicide bombings killed more than 60 people. An organisation called ISIS-K took responsibility of the acts.
With the resurgence of the Taliban group and its rivalry with ISIS-K, experts are concerned the jihadi terrorism will expand across the world, particularly in South East Asia.
The war in Afghanistan has costed more than 10 trillion dollars, and it’s considered a failure.
