Afghan insurgents: Attack revenge for prophet film

KABUL, Afghanistan

Haroon Zarghhon claimed responsibility for Tuesday's attack near Kabul airport in an email to The Associated Press. He said the attack was carried out by a 22-year-old woman named Fatima.

He is with the group called Hezb-e-Islami led by former warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.

Police say a suicide bomber rammed a small sedan heavily laden with explosives into a mini-bus believed to be carrying foreign aviation workers to the airport at dawn.
