Afghan suicide bomber kills 12 in attack on police

Yahoo News, via the AP feed:

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Authorities say a suicide bomber sneaked into a police dining hall in central Afghanistan at lunchtime and blew himself up, killing 12 other people.

Uruzgan provincial government spokesman Abdullah Himmat says authorities are trying to determine how the suicide bomber passed three checkpoints to enter the crowded hall Friday at about 12:30 p.m.

He says the bomber entered the dining hall and detonated a suicide vest just inside the door. The dining hall was on a base used by police assigned to secure the main highway to neighboring Kandahar.

Afghan media reported 10 of the 12 victims were Afghan national police officers. Himmat however would only say that the dead were "primarily police." Five other people were wounded in the explosion.

Too short to excerpt.

It is getting increasingly saddening to post these stories every single day.
Before you bitch about the youth of today ... think about who raised them.
