Zabihullah Mujahid said in a message to journalists that the strike happened Sunday.

US military officials could not be immediately reached for comment.

The incident happened as police said a rocket struck a neighbourhood just northwest of Kabul”s international airport Sunday as the US evacuation there winds down following the Taliban”s lightning takeover of the country, killing a child. The two strikes initially appeared to be separate incidents, though information on both remained scarce.
