3 policemen killed in Afghan attack

Three Afghan policemen were killed Thursday in an attack on a government office in Afghanistan's eastern Paktia province.

Five attackers wearing vests laden with explosives stormed into the Samkanai District administrator's office where a meeting of tribal elders was ongoing Thursday afternoon, said Rohullah Samoon, a spokesman for the Patkia province governor's office.

Three of the attackers blew themselves up at the entrance, Samoon said. The other two engaged in a fierce gun battle with Afghan security forces backed by NATO air support.

The shooting went on for an hour before the two attackers were killed, Samoon said. Two policemen were injured, among them the chief of police, he said.

    Were these priests all gay men? Were they just going for a walk downstairs to play with our children. Were they hidden by their big religious organization that handled the problem internally for decades...centuries? What do private citizens investihations of 9/11 conclude? What did our retired FDNY firemen find using standard procedures of investigation? (bobcat 2 u, aka tomcat Harkins has been there, but is hush hush about it) Exactly how many gay religious leaders who got caught raypeing boy's AREN'T in prison for statutory raype? YAWN my ass you old hag enablers.

    @Bodmin Boy:
    Leave me and mine alone.
    I warn you, I can write as good of fiction as you do.
    Keep telling yourself those lies; perhaps you really believe them.
    That's the sign of a diseased mind; believing one's own fabrications.
    You promised, and you lied.
    I kept mine, and I got this.
    Stop it.
