A powerful blast and gunfire are reported outside a major US outpost in Afghanistan the very same Bagram Air base that Donald Trump paid a surprise visit to, less than two weeks ago. The news comes as a damning report is released shedding light on how top American officials have been routinely distorting facts and figures on the War in Afghanistan in an attempt to convince the public the drawn-out war is winnable. The French government reveals more details on controversial pension reforms that have sparked mass strikes. The US president says he looks forward to more dialogue with Russia after meeting foreign minister Sergey Lavrov at the White House. That visit, however, triggered more speculation about supposed secret Trump-Moscow links - something Lavrov brushed off as absurd.
