Bomb Explodes Near US Facility in Afghanistan

A suicide car bomber has detonated explosives near a U.S.-run military facility in Afghanistan, killing three civilians.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, which took place on Wednesday near the facility known as Forward Operating Base Chapman.

In 2009, seven U.S.Central Intelligence Agency employees and a Jordanian worker were killed at the base in a suicide bombing by an al-Qaida-linked agent. 

The facility is located in the eastern city of Khost, a volatile region near the Pakistani border.

There were no reports of NATO casualties in Wednesday's blast, which also left seven people wounded.

The attack comes two days after a female Afghan police officer shot and killed an American adviser in Kabul, an incident that once again raised concerns about the ability of Afghan authorities to manage security after most foreign troops pull out in 2014.

MOSCOW, (ST) - Chairman of the Scholars al-Iftaa House for all Russia, Sheikh Farid Salman, has affirmed that the armed terrorist groups exploit Islam and religious slogans to implement their criminal acts in Syria, stressing that Islam is quite innocent of their acts.

He said that Obama like his predecessors has chosen liquidate the surviving Arab leadership and that’s why US has mounted aggression against Syria from Turkish side which is one of the pillars of NATO.

The Panthers Party Supremo accused Anglo-American Bloc for abetting Israel in its utter defiance of UN Resolutions which are lying in the dustbin of the Security Council since 1967. It was US which attacked Iraq under the pretext of cleansing its weapons of mass destruction which never existed even according to the finding of UN Inspectors. The US leadership should have been tried in the UN Criminal Court in the Hague for heinous crimes committed by it in Iraq, Libya and Africa.

The Panthers Party leader accused USA for supporting Israel against its open defiance of UN directions to stop Jewish settlements in Jerusalem and other occupied areas of Palestine. The United Nations has recognized Palestine as a State by giving it statehood status yet Israel has declared Israeli University right in the heart of Palestine, Jericho. He urged Dr. Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister of India for India’s urgent intervention both in case of Syria and Palestine in the interest of international peace, justice and security.
