Pakistan militants in Karzai ambush

Afghanistan‘s intelligence chief Amrullah Saleh blamed militants from Pakistan for Sunday’s incident, saying it was unclear if Pakistan’s special agencies gave the “go ahead” for attack, which killed three people but left Karzai unscathed.

“The evidence once again shows that the soil of Pakistan has been used against us,” Saleh told CNN. “Clearly there (is) very, very strong evidence suggesting that Pakistan soil once again has been used to inflict pain upon our nation.”

Afghan security forces searching for militants tied to the attack raided several homes early Wednesday, resulting in the deaths of seven people — including a woman and child with ties to militants — according to Saleh.

Something must change on Musharraf’s lads if we want peace in the area. Do you remember Musharraf? George W. Bush’s best friend and ally in the war against terror!!!

Karzai unhurt after parade attack

At least one person has been killed and 11 were hurt in an attack on a military parade in Kabul attended by President Hamid Karzai and other dignitaries.

Security forces whisked Mr. Karzai away from the scene and hundreds fled as shots rang out. Two MPs were reported to be among the wounded.

The parade was a celebration to mark 16 years since the overthrow of the country’s Soviet-backed rule. A spokesman for the Taleban said the movement had carried out the attack.

It seems that it will never stop!
