Attack kills 10 in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan – A suicide attacker ran onto a police training ground and blew himself up, killing up to 10 policemen and wounding dozens more Monday in northern Afghanistan, a security official said.

The attack happened in the relatively quiet city of Kunduz, said Abdul Hadi, a security official. Hadi said that according to preliminary reports, 10 police were killed and 10 were wounded.

Azizullah Safar, chief of the Kunduz hospital, said 41 victims were brought to his hospital — nine died, and 32 wounded, including four in critical condition.

The north is one of the quietest places in war-torn Afghanistan, and militant attacks in there are rare.
