A rocket struck the grounds of the Afghan interior ministry Saturday, but did not cause any casualties, authorities said.
The attack took place Saturday night, said Zahir Azimi, a spokesman for the defense ministry. He did not offer additional details.
The ministry is in the heart of the capital city, close to the presidential palace.
Christmas came a day late for the families of nearly 300 soldiers returning to Fort Drum in New York on Saturday from a one-year deployment in Afghanistan.
But it hardly seemed to matter.
Loud cheers filled Magrath Gym as the soldiers marched in just at just after 6 in the morning.
Many families waved signs and flags. One toddler sported a shirt that read, "Welcome home Daddy. I took care of Mommy while you were gone."
