A suicide bombing at an outdoor dog fighting competition killed 80 people and wounded scores more Sunday, a governor said, in what appeared to be the deadliest terror attack in Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban in 2001.We here in America argue about varying degrees of change, whatever that means, and how Mrs. Clinton can finagle enough superdelegates to steal the Democrat nomination, while our enemies determinedly go about murdering innocents with impunity.
Officials said the attack apparently targeted a prominent militia commander who had stood up against the Taliban. He died in the attack.
Several hundred people — including Afghan militia leaders — had gathered to watch the event on the western edge of the southern city of Kandahar. Witnesses reported gunfire from bodyguards after the blast; it was not immediately clear if the bullets killed anyone.
Kandahar Gov. Asadullah Khalid said 80 people died in the attack. Abdullah Fahim, a Health Ministry spokesman, said 70 were wounded.
Change isn't going to help much when they start detonating on our soil.
