Suicide bombing in Afghanistan’s capital kills 12

"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 in a phone interview

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 

A demonstration outside a U.S. military base in Kabul on Monday saw outbreaks of violence and minor injuries to a small number of policemen and protesters. However, most demonstrations against the video have been relatively peaceful.

Tuesday’s suicide bombing – which took place around 6.40am – also underscores the apparent ease with which insurgent groups can penetrate security in Kabul, supposedly the most secure city in Afghanistan. It follows an audacious attack by Taliban insurgents dressed in American army uniforms that penetrated security at a heavily-guarded U.S.-led coalition base in restive Helmand province. Two U.S. marines were killed and at least six Harrier jets were destroyed.

“I heard a powerful explosion, and the area was covered with dust. I saw pieces of the cars everywhere, it was early morning and there weren’t many people around, otherwise the casualties would have been much higher.”

"Many of the victims were contract personnel with Air Charter Service, a London-headquartered company that provides services to the U.S. Agency for International Development and other organizations in Afghanistan, U.S. Embassy officials said."

A faction of Hezb-i-Islami headed by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar was a Washington-supported group battling the Soviets during their occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980s. Today it shares many elements of the Taliban ideology. In some parts of the country, it cooperates with the Taliban insurgents in the campaign against foreign and Afghan forces despite some differences.

But the group has rarely claimed responsibility for past suicide attacks. Only two attacks by women bombers have occurred in recent memory. The Taliban said they were sympathizers with the cause of driving out foreign forces that support the Afghan government."
