Gunmen enter Kandahar school

Gunmen entered a school near the national security building in Kandahar in southern Afghanistan where Taliban prisoners are held.

In an ensuing gun battle with police, two would-be suicide bombers were killed. The gunfire exchange also wounded two security officials and a teacher at the school.

    I am utterly amazed that Taliban prisoners held in a Muslim school would not be heavily guarded. Taliban routinely attack Muslim schools suspected of teaching Islamic women. Taliban routinely attack prison's which often results in the release of the Taliban prisoners. When you have both situations under one roof, it is almost a guarantee the Taliban soldiers are going to come and try to break out the Taliban prisoners and blow up the school on their way out of the door!
