Twin suicide bombings kill at least 8 in Afghanistan

At least eight people were killed Saturday when two suicide bombers attacked the police headquarters in southeastern Afghanistan's Paktika province, a police official said.

The first attacker detonated his explosives around 11:30 a.m. (2 a.m. ET) and the second attacker struck half an hour later, said Gen. Daud Andrabi, director of the Police Coordination Center in southeastern Afghanistan.

There were other reports of more casualties, Andrabi said, and it was also not clear how many of the victims were police officers and how many were civilians.

In the east, a NATO-led service member was killed in a bombing on Saturday, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said. ISAF didn't specify the precise location or identify the person's nationality.

    dindy.. they want to rule over you. They do not believe that they have done anything wrong, as a matter of fact they think that they will be rewarded by God for the Jews and Christians they kill.

      No body will get rewarded for that crime on 9/11 . Even God did not want to do any thing like the floods during Nova"s time.again. God listened to the righteous. Not that I am saying I am righteous. God has to decide it. What I say is some wont follow God"s way even . Yet they say they know God.

    So what do we have to do catch these known terrorists making and planting or even as sick as it sound putting on suicide vests and take them to court? This is a war, if we have intelligence that our drones can take out these guys before any such actions takes place the better off we are in this war!

    Those that are killed by these drone strikes have been positively identified as terror suspects, others that happen to associated with these terrorists might also get kill, but in no way are we targeting innocent civilians as the Taliban and their terrorist allies do!

    With US active support and finances, for wars in the name of Jehad ( presently called terrorism) against communist USSR, started in 1980 and continued till the fall of Taliban in 2001 but no where a single incident of suicide attack has been reported as what USA called holy warriors ( Mujahideen now terrorists) had support of whole West under the leadership of USA and they had no problem in fighting with a super power USSR. However in this war on terror main combatants are USA and few stateless individuals of Alqaida which CIA chief says between 50 or 100 and some Taliban with a cause to fight against invaders. This is like a war between a mosquito and a dinosaur therefore suicide bombing is like falling of a mosquito in the eyes of a dinosaur making the world dark for him. In this unfortunate incident as usual innocent Afghans are main victims which is condemnable from every respect however main culprit is USA and their barbarism in the name of human rights and democracy in world politics as this inhuman practice is a gift of this war on terror in this region and which is always responsible for such inhuman happenings in this region
