“A Taliban suicide bomber blew himself up at a bank not far from the U.S. embassy in Kabul, killing five people on Tuesday, as government employees lined up to withdraw salaries ahead of the holiday. An airstrike meant for a Taliban command post north of the capital in Herat also killed at least 13 civilians, according to local officials. The Taliban insurgent group said one of its suicide bombers blew himself up at the Nawe Kabul bank to kill security forces waiting to withdraw cash ahead the Eid al-Adha holiday, the holiest day of the Muslim calendar.” (08/29/17)
