Kabul, June 27 (DPA) Eight Arab, five Pakistani and two Afghan militants were killed when bombs they were making exploded prematurely inside a mosque in eastern Afghanistan, the interior ministry said Sunday.

The insurgents were assembling bombs in Desi Mosque of Yousifkhela district in the south-eastern province of Paktika Friday, the ministry said.

Pakika borders the Pakistani town of Wana, where Taliban militants are said to have training bases. Afghan officials have repeatedly blamed Islamabad for not doing enough to clamp down on cross-border infiltration by insurgents.

In the northern province of Kunduz, several Taliban fighters including a foreign insurgent commander were killed Saturday by a NATO airstrike in Chardarah district, NATO said Sunday.

'After verifying insurgent activity and conducting careful planning to avoid civilian casualties and mitigate collateral damage, coalition aircraft were called in for the precision airstrike,' it said.

The targeted commander coordinated logistical support and operations 'with the Taliban's Pakistan foreign fighter cell leadership', it said.

NATO also confirmed the death of one of its soldiers in a roadside explosion in southern Afghanistan Saturday. The alliance had already reported the deaths of five more troops killed in separate attacks in the country Saturday.

Saturday's deaths brought the total of foreign soldiers killed in the war this year to 309, compared with the 157 deaths registered between January and June of 2009, according to


Own goal!

The perils of ignoring Occupational Health and Safety. They should really look into some sort of program to enhance safety.

"Days without workplace injury- 0"

What really surprises me is that they were making bombs in a mosque. So much for "religion of peace".

See, this is why I really think the CIA is behind the terrorists.
The Christmas plane bomber:
I can just see the CIA jock squad remembering putting heat in the wimps underware back in high school & college and laughing. Same here.
New York car bomb & Mosque bombing by own people:
I can just see the jock squad "forgetting" one small piece of info in the bomb building class.
human bombs:
This is the best one:
Put on this bomb vest, run into that group of people, punch the button & you will be in paradise with a 73 year old - I mean 73 virgins.
Yuck, Yuck, Yuck
