KAPISA PROVINCE – Wednesday’s killing of the mayor of Afghanistan’s southern city of Kandahar, Ghulam Haydar Hamidi, has once again thrown the spotlight on suicide bombings and the people who carry them out. The attack took place at Hamidi’s office compound.

A spokesman for the provincial governor told Radio Free Europe/Liberty that the bomber entered the courtyard of the Kandahar city hall by pretending he was with a group of tribal elders who were there to discuss a land dispute with the mayor. The assailant reportedly had explosives hidden in his turban and detonated them after requesting a meeting with the mayor. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the killing.
