The Afghan who drove a hijacked vehicle onto the runway ramp as US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta arrived at a military airfield has died of severe burn wounds, the US military said.

The driver, who was in flames after crashing the vehicle, had a container of fuel in the car and "my personal opinion is I think he had the intent to harm", General Mike Scaparotti told reporters.
