7 police officers dead in suicide attack

A suicide car bomb targeting a military convoy killed seven Afghan police officers in northern Afghanistan on Thursday, authorities said. The strike occurred in Aghantepa, a village in the Aman Sahib district of Kunduz province. A provincial official reported the attack, which was confirmed by the country's Interior Ministry.

Of the seven police killed, six were national police officers and one was a tribal police officer.

Seven civilians and six tribal police officers were injured, but there was no immediate word from NATO's International Security Assistance Force about whether international forces sustained casualties.

The attacker used a Toyota Corolla to conduct the strike, which government officials called a brutal act.

    Like the KKK, the Taliban are bred. The world will never see the end of either.

    The Crook Chief of Pakistan Army-Kayani openly told the ambassador of Canada that they do not like to see the help of India to Afghanistan. These Pakistani Crooks are breeding terrorists all over the World. George Bush made a big mistake. Instead of going after Pakistan he went to Iraq which was very wrong. I am sure one day the whole will go after Pakistan because everybody knows who is the culprit. PAKISTAN NEEDS TO BE PUNISHED.

    Even UK President Officially announced that Pakistan is the main location of terrorists and exporting terrorists to all countries. someone should take care of Pakistan ASAP.

    Afghanistan should put Pakistan and pakistanies in Blacklist and don't allow them to Enter Afghanistan at all.

        Does it still pain to know that Pakistan was split into two by Jews, Hindis and Buddhas? I guess that counts as bashing you took and the reason for all your venting anger against them.

      Since UK priminister officially said Pakitan is center of all terrorist plots it is a fact now. I guess at least it is a fact for the Indian brother who are still living in pre 1947 times. Your master said something and it becomes a fact.

      And yes please someone please take care of Pakistan because India dose not has the balls to confront Pakistan which happens to be 1/4th its size and has army only half as big as that of India and has Airforce just half as small as that of Inida and economy 1/0th of India. Still propoganda machines wants to create hate towards Pakistan so that India can use US power and US tax payers money to get their dirty work done.
