Suicide bombing kills 6 at Afghanistan hospital, officials say

Six people were killed and 26 injured in a suicide bombing at a military hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Saturday, authorities said.

A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility, and said 51 people had died.

At least 26 people were injured, said Zahir Azimi, a spokesman for the ministry of defense.

Two Taliban members carried out suicide attacks on the Charsd Bester military hospital, Zabiullah Mojahed, a spokesman for the militant group, told CNN

"One of them detonated inside the eating place and the second one was shot to death and now the operation is over," he said. "As a result, 51 people (have) been killed, including foreigners."

    @HelenHull-your nasty,racist comments never cease to amaze-and nauseate- me. It's Sunday morning and you wake up filled with this much hatred? What makes your way of thinking any better than the Muslim extremists you hate so much? Advocating target practice against an entire race of people as sport? Stay classy,Helen.
