As many as 5 rockets fired at Kabul airport

American officials have confirmed that U.S. anti-missile defences have intercepted as many as five rockets that were fired at Kabul’s airport

There are no reports of any casualties at this time, but the incident comes as the United States rushes to complete its withdrawal from Afghanistan to end its longest war.

Around 114,000 people have been evacuated from Kabul airport so far.

Emerging reports have found that the recent US drone strike on Kabul has killed several civilians

CNN says that the US drone strike in Kabul killed nine members of one family, including six children.

The drone strike was used to take out out a suspected ISIS-K suicide bomber in what was a defensive attack.

This all comes just hours before the Taliban’s deadline to have all US forces and their allies out of Afghanistan as evacuation efforts continue at rapid pace.

The US strikes back at ISIS-K

Last week, ISIS-K suicide bombers killed as many as 170 people, including 13 American military personnel in coordinated attacks. This has prompted the US to retaliate with airstrikes.

In a bid to prevent any further attacks, special forces acted on intelligence they had received. Central command has said the targeted drone strike has eliminated an imminent threat.

Captain Bill Urban says, “we are confident we successfully hit the target” with “secondary explosions from the vehicle indicating the presence of a substantial amount of explosive material.”

This is the second drone strike on an ISIS-K vehicle by the US

A Taliban spokesperson said it is “not right to conduct operations on others’ soil”. The militant group requested forewarning in the future.

Microsoft recalls ‘Recall AI’ feature over security fears

Published

on

Microsoft has announced a postponement in the release of its new Recall AI feature, citing significant security concerns raised during internal testing.

Pope Francis took charge of discussions on the implications of artificial intelligence for global ethics and governance, Reuters reports.

The pope said AI represented an “epochal transformation” for mankind, but stressed the need for close oversight of the ever-developing technology to preserve human life and dignity.

“No machine should ever choose to take the life of a human being,” he said, adding that people should not let superpowerful algorithms decide their destiny.
“We would condemn humanity to a future without hope if we took away people’s ability to make decisions about themselves and their lives, by dooming them to depend on the choices of machines,” he warned.
