Attackers Target Afghan U.N. Offices

Afghan insurgents killed five people—three of whom worked for the United Nations—in an attack near the U.N. refugee agency in Kandahar. A suicide bomber drove an explosive-laden truck into a checkpoint near the UNHCR office Monday morning, and three insurgents stormed the compound, which houses several aid organizations. The attackers fought with Afghan forces for seven hours, taking control of at least one building. It’s the second attack on foreign organizations in Afghanistan in three days.
