Afghan forces break charity office siege
Afghan forces kill militants after second major attack in Kabul in a day
Afghan police killed three attackers who had raided offices of a major international charity in the capital Kabul on Tuesday morning, in the second major attack in a day.
Ministry of Interior spokesman Sediq Siddiqi said one civilian was killed and 40 people injured, including 10 foreigners, when militants attacked the office of U.S. charity CARE with an explosive-laden vehicle, then started firing positions around the compound.
The attack came less than 10 hours after a Taliban twin suicide attack killed 24 people in Kabul at the Ministry of Defense on Monday night.
Afghan Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah appeared to indirectly blamed Pakistan for the attacks.
“While we seek beneficial relationships with neighbors, we will not turn a blind eye to blatant support of terrorist activities in our country. Afghans are fighting a war against terrorists who are trained, advised, supported and instructed in our neighborhood," he said in a series of tweets.
