Afghanistan: Two Russian Embassy Workers Killed in Suicide Bombing



Two Russian embassy workers were among many people killed on Monday in an explosion outside the country’s diplomatic mission in the Afghan capital, Kabul, Russia’s Foreign Ministry has said.

A suicide bomber detonated his vest around the corner from the main gate of the Russian embassy, apparently targeting locals queuing for visas, according to the local media.

The death toll has reached 25, with many more injured, according to the news network Al Jazeera.

The blast had occurred when an employee of the embassy went outside to people waiting in the line, a source told RIA-Novosti news agency.

Reuters earlier reported that the guards were able to spot the suicide bomber and fired shots at him.

If the US is sending their terrorists to suicide bomb Russian embassies, well – that’s a sure sign that they’re really confident about how their war against Russia is going.

You know how the old saying goes: “first you become chronically confused, then you become desperate and unhinged, and then you win.”
