A Taliban suicide car bomber has killed at least six people in an attack at Jalalabad airport in eastern Afghanistan.
Insurgents said the attack was in revenge for a Koran burning incident at a US air base a week ago.
The burning, which the US says was unintentional, has sparked violent protests across the country.
Nato said it had no reports of international forces being among the casualties in Jalalabad.
The airport serves both civilian and international military aircraft. Witnesses reported seeing at least four destroyed cars at the gates.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in an email to media: "This attack is revenge against those soldiers who burned our Koran.''
President Hamid Karzai has appealed for calm amid anger at the incident at Bagram air base near Kabul.
In his televised address on Sunday, Mr Karzai "condemned with the strongest word
|The poll already expired - voting is no longer possible!|
|Leave and let the Afghans deal with the taliban|
|Negociate terms with the taliban and leave|
|Stay and try to maintain peace|
|Crack down on the revolting masses and re-establish order through force|
