Officials: Bomb blasts kill at least 8 in Afghanistan

Two bomb blasts targeting Afghan security forces in different parts of the country killed at least eight personnel this morning, officials said.

The first explosion occurred in southern Afghanistan's Kandahar province when a suicide bomber on a motorcycle struck a police station in Kandahar City, killing three policemen, said Ahmad Javed Faisal, spokesman for the Kandahar Media and Information Center.

In the second incident, five Afghan National Army soldiers were killed when a bomb targeting a convoy was remotely detonated in eastern Laghman province's Bad Pakh district, Sarhadi Zwak, a spokesman for the provincial governor, said.

    Muslims killing Muslims! That means less people in that part of the world and those killed go straight to paradise with 72 virgins especially chosen by Allah. Sounds like a win/win situation. Where is the downside?
