#AceWorldNews – KABUL – September 28 – An explosion has struck the diplomatic quarter of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, a day before the inauguration ceremony for the country’s new president, Ashraf Ghani.
The blast took place in Zanbaq Square, close to the Iranian and Turkish embassies, journalists in the city reported, adding that the explosion might be a result of a magnetic bomb on an Afghan army vehicle.”
At 9:15 this morning, a sticky bomb attached to an Afghan army vehicle exploded in Zanbaq Square … only injuring the driver,” Najib Danish, Interior Ministry deputy spokesman, told Reuters.
Ghani succeeds outgoing president Hamid Karzai, the only Afghan leader since the 2001 US-led invasion.
#AceBreakingNews – KABUL – September 21 – Afghanistan’s two presidential contenders signed an unprecedented power-sharing agreement Sunday, ending a drawn-out political stand-off and setting the stage for a U.S. troop commitment past this year.
Signing Power-Sharing Agreement ‘
The agreement names Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, who is believed to have received the most votes in a June run-off election, as president.
His challenger, Abdullah Abdullah, a former foreign minister, will become chief executive.
“I am very happy today that both of my brothers, Dr. Ashraf Ghani and Dr. Abdullah Abdullah, in an Afghan agreement for the benefit of this country, for the progress and development of this country, that they agreed on the structure affirming the new government of Afghanistan,” President Hamid Karzai, in power since the 2001 U.S.-led invasion that ousted the Taliban, said after the signing.
The deal ends political wrangling that began after a June run-off vote between two candidates. An independent election commission was assigned to audit the results after allegations of widespread fraud.
Later Sunday, the country’s election commission announced Ghani Ahmadzai as the winner of the presidential election, but did not release final vote figures.
#AceWorldNews AFGHANISTAN(Kabul) September 16 – A Taliban attacker detonated his car bomb next to an international military convoy on Tuesday, killing three troops from the NATO-led force and wounding nearly 20 troops and civilians, officials said.
Security forces in full battle gear administered CPR to wounded comrades shortly after the 8:10 am. blast, which rattled nearby neighbourhoods and sent a plume of smoke high into the sky.
The attack happened only a couple hundred yards from the U.S. Embassy.
#AceWorldNews – AFGHANISTAN (Kabul) – Seven Afghani men have been found guilty of kidnapping, attacking and gang raping four women who were returning to Kabul after a wedding on August 23.
Violence against women is common in Afghanistan but barely receives as much attention as this case, which has seen President Karzai call for the men’s deaths.
The men were wearing police uniforms when they stopped a convoy of cars, pulled the women out and attacked them, according to local police.
#AceWorldNews – AFGHANISTAN (Kabul) – August 30 – A suicide bomber in a truck blew himself up at an intelligence headquarters in eastern Afghanistan on Saturday, killing at least two people and setting off an intense fire-fight with security forces, officials said.
After the bombing outside the headquarters of the National Directorate of Security (NDS) in Jalalabad, militants battled with security forces for an hour before authorities were able to put down the attack, said Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, a spokesman for the Nangarhar governor.
He would not say how many attackers were involved or whether they were all killed or some escaped. He said authorities were searching the grounds.
Abdulzai put the death toll at two and said they were both from the NDS, but Najibullah Kamawal, the top provincial health official, said six bodies had been brought to the hospital.
Conflicting death tolls are common in the immediate aftermath of such bombings.
Kamawal said 45 people were wounded. The powerful explosion shook the entire neighborhood, breaking nearby windows and startling residents.
#AceWorldNews – AFGHANISTAN (Kabul) – July 02 – A suicide bomber targeted a bus carrying Afghan military personnel in the capital Kabul on Wednesday morning, killing eight air force officers and wounding five, Hashmat Stanekzai, a spokesman for Kabul’s police chief told Reuters.
The explosion happened in the heavily secured down-town area near Kabul University.
Heavy fighting is still under-way in the strategically important Sangin district of southern Helmand province. Many Afghans fear overall security is deteriorating.
The bulk of NATO troops are due to withdraw this year and Afghan security forces have taken primary responsibility for securing the country.
