Binocular Snapshot for 5/21/2011

LastDayWatchers "watch" for the true realities on the ground

Violence in the disputed northern Iraqi province of Kirkuk left five people dead on Saturday

"The latest violence further raises tension in Kirkuk and its eponymous capital, which are claimed by both the central government in Baghdad and Kurdish regional authorities in Arbil.

And in Al-Rashad, 65 kilometres (40 miles) south of the provincial capital, a roadside bomb targeting an Iraqi army patrol killed two soldiers and wounded two others, according to police Brigadier General Sarhad Qader.

A separate roadside bomb against a police patrol in Al-Riyadh, east of Kirkuk city, also wounded two civilians, Qader said."

Afghan hospital complex in Kabul hit by suicide bomber; 6 killed

"The noontime attack in the center of Afghanistan's capital is the first major assault in Kabul since the Taliban announced the start of their 'spring offensive' and revives fears about the militants' ability to infiltrate sensitive government sites.

The attack was the latest in a series of Taliban strikes against military bases or government compounds. Last month, a bomber made his way into the Defense Ministry, killing at least two people. Another attacker killed Kandahar's provincial police chief in his office compound.

Afghan insurgent groups including the Taliban have declared their determination to keep fighting in the wake of Osama bin Laden's death in a raid in Pakistan"

"The attack is sure to reignite concerns about insurgent infiltrators within the ranks of the Afghan security forces, and about sympathizers working within the government. All vehicles and visitors are supposed to be searched before entering the compound."

Last month, a suicide bomber wearing a police uniform infiltrated the police headquarters in Kandahar and killed the province’s much-revered police chief and two officers. The next day, a bomber in an Afghan Army uniform carried out a similar attack at a military base in Lagham Province, killing five NATO service members, an American contractor and four members of the Afghan security force. Days later, a would-be suicide bomber in an Afghan Army uniform opened fire inside the heavily fortified Defense Ministry in downtown Kabul, killing two soldiers. He was killed before he could detonate explosives in his vest."
