Well just fancy that...

The U.S. military has had its eyes on Afghan mineral deposits for some time. A 2007 Pentagon memo that the New York Times quoted in a 2010 article says that Afghanistan could be the “Saudi Arabia of lithium,” referencing the oil-rich monarchy that is a key U.S. regional ally.

“There is stunning potential here (in Afghanistan),” General David Petraeus said in the same memo.

It's been reported that IS have claimed responsibility.

What is really sad is that we are so used to hearing about suicide bombs in that and other areas that we seem to be immune too it..It hardly warrants a mention on The news.
