Afghan officials: Suicide bomber kills 3 civilians in Kabul day after visit by top U.S. general in Afghanistan | Military Times

At least three civilians were killed and over 15 others were wounded when a suicide bomber targeted Afghan special forces. The government is currently blaming the Taliban for the attack that occurred right outside the base where civilian workers were waiting to go inside. “The target was likely the base itself, but the bomber failed to reach his target and instead killed innocent civilians,” commented Tareq Arian, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry. The attack occurred just one day after the Afghan defense minister, Gen. Assadullah Khalid, and the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, U.S. Gen. Scott Miller, visited the base.
