Apparently the sanctity of the mosque can only be violated by Americans, not by Muslim attackers. Also, what was that again about suicide bombing being a last resort of the desperately poor? From the Herald Sun, with thanks to Anthony:
AFGHAN strongman Abdul Rashid Dostam has survived an assassination attempt in which a suicide bomber blew himself up at the mosque where Dostam was saying Eid prayers.
“Today in the morning when General Dostam finished prayers in Ghocha Park mosque in Shibirghan and as he started greeting people, there was an explosion,” Mohammed Yusuf Rawanyar, head of Aina television in Shibirghan, said.
“A terrorist who had strapped explosives to his body blew himself up in the mosque, injuring two of General Dostam’s bodyguards and some civilians.”
