CNN February 11, 2014


Two civilian contractors killed in a suicide bombing in eastern Afghanistan earlier this week were Americans, the U.S. Embassy in Kabul said Tuesday.

The contractors were working with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force when they died Monday.

The attack was a suicide car bombing targeting an ISAF military convoy in eastern Kabul, near the country’s largest detention center, according to one of the city’s district police chiefs, Akbar Ali.

Six other people were injured in the attack, Ali said.

The insurgent group Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin claimed responsibility for the attack, according to group spokesman Eng Haroon Zarghob.

  1. Federal Worker’s Comp can put another notch in their belt for people they have killed through negligence. My husband died last week from injuries received in Iraq in 2011. I am still grieving as are many relatives and friends but now I am starting to get mad about this whole attitude that only money matters – not human life.
