More ugliness in Kabul

Official: 17 killed, 46 wounded in Kabul attacks

A spokesman for the Defense Ministry says 17 people were killed and 46 wounded in multiple attacks on government building attacks in Kabul.

Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi says that eight attackers also died in the attacks outside the Justice Ministry and other government buildings Wednesday. He says all attackers had suicide vests, but only three assailants set them off.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attacks.

The coordinated attacks — in the heart of the city and a stone's throw from the presidential palace — come ahead of a visit by President Barack Obama's special envoy to the region.

according to some of the folks at the project i work with, all movement of project folks in the city has been halted... i hit ground there on saturday afternoon... we'll see what the situation is then...
