Afghanistan: 12 Dead in ‘anti-Islam Movie’ Attack
Terrorists murdered 12 people in a bombing in Afghanistan on Tuesday, at least nine of them foreign citizens. Police said the dead were South African and Russian civilians employed at a nearby airport, and Afghan bystanders.
The Hizb-I Islami terrorist faction claimed responsibility for the bombing, and claimed the attack had been carried out as revenge for the film The Innocence of Muslims. The movie has been cited as the cause for several violent riots in the Muslim world in recent days.
