KABUL- Explosions were heard by Reuters witnesses and there were reports of gunfire near Afghanistan's main international airport in the capital, Kabul, early on Monday, and a police spokesman said insurgents had launched an attack.

The attack on the airport - which is also home to a large NATO-led military base - began shortly before 5 a.m. (0030 GMT), Kabul police spokesman Hashmat Stanekzai said. Explosions could still be heard several minutes after the attack began.
