Video: The Power of the Mother of All Bombs

posted by LaDona Harvey - 

The US has dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in existence in a remote part of Afghanistan. 

It's referred to as the MOAB, the "Mother of all bombs".

The target was ISIS, and the area was close to the border with Pakistan. The target was apparently a large complex in Nangarhar province. 

This is the first time the bomb, developed in the Iraq war, has been used in the battlefield.
