Kabul Attack Victims Bodies Arrive in India

Times of India, Posted: Jul 07, 2008

The attack near the Indian embassy in Kabul is the first major attack on an Indian mission abroad, reports the Times of India. The bodies of four Indians, including a Defence Attache and a Counselor, killed in the attack were flown back to Delhi on a special plane. Forty-one people were killed in total. The impact of the explosion blew off the embassy's gates and outer structure and damaged buildings inside the compound. The bomb was placed in a Toyota Corolla driven by the suicide bomber who blew himself up as well. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is in Japan to attend the G-8 summit. He said he was horrified by the news. India is regarded as one of the strongest supporters of the Karzai government in Afghanistan and one of the largest donors to the reconstruction projects there. A news analysis said India's $750 million presence in Afghanistan is opposed by both Pakistan and the Taliban. Though no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, Indian media blamed it on the Pakistan secret service ISI's Taliban groups, and see it as a signal that Pakistan and Taliban want India out of Afghanistan.
