Only Friday was the Afghan army able to enter the area where the 11-ton bomb was dropped last Thursday by the Americans in the Achin district, eastern Nangarhar province.
But some videos, filmed around two days after the explosion, are the first ones being circulated. These were recorded after the Americans opened the sealed area around the blast area. These videos show the first impact of the destruction and the effects of a bomb considered second only to the atomic bomb: the most powerful non-nuclear bomb, whose effects are still secret and will probably remain so.
But while the first Afghan soldiers were given permission to visit the area, 500 km further north in the Balkh province, the Taliban executed the bloodiest attack against a national military target. They left more than 100 dead soldiers.
The dynamics of the attack on Friday against the military base of the 209th Shaheen Corps in the Balkh province, a city surrounded by a turbaned guerrilla belt for several years, is still being reconstructed.
