The United States dropped a "Mother of All Bombs" in Afghanistan. This is the first time the bomb has been used in real combat. It's also the largest bomb to be used in the Afghan conflict.

The Pentagon says the strike targeted a network of caves and tunnels being used by the Islamic State terrorist group in eastern Afghanistan. It's not yet clear how much damage the bomb has inflicted, but US President Donald Trump has described the bombing as a "very successful mission."
