A suicide truck bomb targeted Kabul’s “Green Zone” diplomatic area earlier today killing 80 people and wounding as many as 350. Among the wounded were 11 United States citizens servings as contractors.
The blast occurred during the holy month of Ramadan, not surprisingly. It detonated near the German embassy and Afghan presidential palace during the busiest part of the day. The group behind the attack is yet to be confirmed.
