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.
