A suicide truck bombing at the Green Villlage compound in Kabul, Afghanistan has killed at least 16 people and injured 120. The attack occurred hours after a peace deal was reached between US forces and the Taliban that would mean 5,000 US soldiers leaving the country. Unconfirmed reports say gunmen also entered the compound. A nearby gas station and tanker truck were also ignited in the blast, causing further damage to property. Hundreds of nearby residents took to the streets the next day demanding the compound be vacated. Several protesters scaled the walls and set fire to part of the compound.
