MOAB strike: US bombing of IS in Afghanistan 'killed dozens' per BBC News

Unfortunately for the BBC, they have to report that:

'A US military strike with a weapon known as the "mother of all bombs" (MOAB) killed 36 IS militants and destroyed their base, the Afghan defence ministry says.

The 21,600lb (9,800kg) bomb was dropped on a tunnel complex used by so-called Islamic State in Nangarhar province.

No civilians were affected by the explosion, the ministry said.'

No civilians affected? The BBC will be distraught that they can't blame the deaths of the ubiquitous Muslim wedding guests on President Donald Trump.
