‘CLASH OF CIVILISATIONS’

From Maiduguri to Kabul. The Islamists send their political messages through suicide bombers.

‘We are in a war zone’ -Chuck Hagel US Defence Secretary.

Militants staged two deadly suicide attacks Saturday to mark the first full day of US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel‘s visit toAfghanistan, a fresh reminder that insurgents continue to fight and challenges remain as the US-led NATO force hands over the country’s security to the Afghans.

A suicide bomber on a bicycle struck outside the Afghan Defense Ministry early Saturday morning, and about a half hour later, another suicide bomber attacked a police checkpoint in Khost city, the capital of Khost province in eastern Afghanistan.

Nine people were killed in the bombing at the ministry, and an Afghan policeman and eight civilians, who were mostly children, died in the blast in Khost, said provincial spokesman Baryalai Wakman.
