One Day After Afghan Officials Condemn NATO For Airstrike Killing Civilians, Taliban IED Kills Seven Civilians In Bus, 3 Children Among Dead

As of right now, no Afghan official has condemned the attack that killed seven civilians including three children...imagine that.  Oh, and don't hold your breath for any sort of condemnation of this.

Remember....Taliban killing kids = Okay, NATO killing civilians by mistake = Bad.

The story comes from DAWN.

Roadside bomb hits bus, killing seven in Afghanistan

KABUL: A bus that took a detour to avoid one roadside bomb instead hit another in the central province of Ghazni, killing seven people, including three children, an Afghan official said.

Assadullah Ensafi said the explosion occurred in the province’s Muqur district on Tuesday morning.

He said 17 people were injured in the explosion.

Ensafi, the provincial deputy police chief, said the bus was heading to Kabul from southern Helmand province.

It took a detour through a desert area because the road it would usually take was closed so Nato troops could defuse a bomb.

Also Tuesday, a suicide car bomb went off in front of an Afghan National Army security post in Logar province's Khushi district.

Deputy police chief Rais Khan Abdul Rahimzai said the explosion wounded four Afghan soldiers.
