Wars & Rumors of War

At least 30 die in attack on Kabul military hospital -
UPI reports: "Gunmen dressed as doctors and a suicide bomber attacked a military hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Wednesday, killing at least 30 people, military officials said. [...] Four attackers with guns and grenades entered the hospital after the explosion at the hospital gate and then opened fire on staff and patients. Troops arriving by helicopter on the hospital's roof killed the attackers after several hours of fighting [...] The Islamic State announced it was responsible for the attack and the Afghan Taliban immediately denied involvement."

Comment: A tragic reminder that much of Afghanistan is still very much a war zone.
