Taliban Bomb Targets US Embassy Staff in Kabul

Tuesday 5 January 2016
Taliban Bomb Targets US Embassy Staff in Kabul

Alwaght- Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan on Monday bombed a convoy of US embassy guards, moving to a secure compound in the country’s capital Kabul.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the car bomb attack on a compound for US embassy guards near the Kabul airport in which 28 people were wounded.
"The car bomb detonated at the gate of Camp Baron on the military side of Kabul airport," confirmed Afghan ministry of interior, just hours after another suicide bomber blew himself up on the same spot.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid confirmed through Twitter that the attack was aimed at "foreigners."
The country's public health ministry says that at least 19 adults and 9 children are being treated in facilities around the city.
The first attacker detonated a suicide vest, but did not manage to hit anyone but himself, while a second bomber used a truck laden with explosives. The relationship between the bombings remains unclear.
Overnight, insurgents battled with Afghan forces near the Indian consulate in the northern town of Mazar-e-Sharif. Three civilians were injured in the attacks. The operation to contain the insurgents lasted through the night and in to Monday morning.
Last week a US-led NATO convoy was also targeted in Kabul, and on Friday, militants staged an explosion at a French restaurant.
The latest attacks comes a week before scheduled talks with the Taliban in Pakistan. The terrorist group, which comprises competing strands with individual objectives, has been making advances during localized insurgencies throughout the country in 2015, and seems divided over whether it wants to push for a ceasefire or greater territorial gains.
Afghanistan is gripped by insecurity nearly 14 years after the United States and its allies attacked the country in 2001 as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror.
