Barbarism. “Suicide bomber targets Afghan hospital,” by Amir Shah for Associated Press, :
KABUL, Afghanistan – A suicide attacker disguised as a health worker blew himself up at a hospital opening ceremony in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday, wounding at least two
NATO soldiers and a hospital staffer, the provincial governor said.
Afghan security forces had blocked the attacker from approaching a crowd of about 150 people who had gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open an emergency ward at the main government hospital in the city of Khost, said Gov. Arsalah Jamal.
U.S. troops who took the man away shot him in the leg when he tried to escape. As the crowd took cover, the attacker blew himself up, Jamal said.
