Suicide bombing in Afghanistan’s capital kills 12; insurgents cite anti-Islamic video
KABUL, Afghanistan (MCT) — Nine foreign nationals and their Afghan driver were killed Tuesday when a suicide bomber rammed an explosive-packed car into their mini-bus near the Kabul airport, government officials said. Two Afghan bystanders were also killed, said a statement from Afghanistan’s interior ministry.
A spokesman for the Afghan insurgent group Hezb-e-Islami claimed responsibility for the attack, which it said was carried out by a young woman. Zubair Sediqi told McClatchy Newspapers in a phone interview that the bombing was in retaliation for the crude YouTube video that insults the prophet Muhammad, Islam’s most revered figure.
