Suicide attack in Kabul
 
Details

           Today on November 30, 2008 (Sunday) at around 1435 hours, a suicide bomber on foot blew himself up near a German Embassy vehicle, close to an American-built high school in Darulman area, Kabul. As per available information more than two locals were killed and six injured in the explosion. As per Kabul Police Chief no German diplomats were injured. Reportedly, the German soldiers responded to the attack, and the blast site was cordoned off by Afghan police.

2.         As conveyed from time to time, possibility of more such attacks on high value targets in Kabul and other places in Afghanistan remains a possibility. Threat of abduction of International Community in Kabul and other parts of the country also continues to remain very high.

3.         In view of the security situation in Kabul and other parts of the country, all Indian nationals in Afghanistan are advised to avoid unnecessary road movements. Towards this end, it is reiterated that in case of road journey is to be performed, adequate security protection in the convoy or in the vehicle should be carried. As has been advised from time to time through advisories, Indians must remain extra cautious and be aware of their surroundings in which they work or live. Avoid public places such as bazaars, restaurants and crowded areas. Keeping a safe distance from International Military/ANA/ANP convoys is again reiterated for your own safety and security, as they continue to be a target of militants.
