Suicide bombers strike U.S. charity in Kandahar as attacks on American benefit escalate

A co-ordinated Taliban suicide bombing and gun attack on a U.S. charity in Afghanistan has killed four people in the most recent outrage to target American interests in the country.


Terrorists struck with a vehicle bomb driven into a check-point at the offices of United Nations and international charities in the southern city of Kandahar throughout the early hours of this morning.


Gunmen then hurried into the neighborhood and detained control of at least one building, sparking a battle with Afghan and NATO forces, Kandahar police chief Gen. Abdul Razzaq said.


The firefight lasted more than two hours before the two insurgents were shot dead, according to a statement from the local governor's office.
