An international convoy was attacked by suicide bombers near the Kabul international airport. However there were no reports of causalities .
The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) confirmed the attacks near a sprawling heavily guarded facility used by civilians and the military. An ISAF spokeswoman Lieutenant Colonel Latondra Kinley confirmed the news.
The blast was a result of an insurgent attack said the deputy police chief of Kabul and assured that there were no causalities.
