The United States has dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on ISIS caves in Afghanistan.

It’s the first time the GBU-43 has been used since it was developed in 2003.

Described as ‘the mother of all bombs’, it was so big it needed to be dropped from the rear of a cargo plane.

Its target was an underground tunnel near the Pakistan border, the Whitehouse confirmed.

President Donald Trump labelled the mission a success.
