Suicide bomber strikes NATO headquarters in Kabul
A suicide bomber blew up explosives near the heavily barricaded NATO headquarters in Kabul on Saturday, killing six civilians.
The bomber, who was riding a motorcycle loaded with explosives, blew himself up near the entrance of Camp Eggers, the base that is home to 2,500 coalition personnel who train Afghan security forces.
Flesh and splattered blood lay on the street near the base, where small bodies were seen being lifted into ambulances. Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said that young children were among the dead.
The Taliban took credit for the attack, saying they had despatched a bomber to target the Kabul offices of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said, "One of our mujahideen targeted an important intelligence office used for recruiting Americans and Afghans for spying."
