Suicide Attack Kills 9 in Afghanistan

Nine civilians, most of whom were children, died on Saturday when suicide bombers attempted to attack the Indian consulate in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. The attack began when two men wearing bomb-rigged vests approached a checkpoint outside the consulate. When suspicious guards opened fire on them, a third attacker set off a bomb inside the militants' car. The bombers died in the attack, which wounded at least 24. No group has yet taken responsibility for the strike.
