US consulate in Afghanistan rocked by multiple blasts, gunfire

The US consulate in the Afghan province of Herat was reportedly under attack with at least six killed, four of them attackers, after a car bomb explosion was followed by a gun fight between militant and security forces.

An Afghan army spokesman told the BBC that the initial blast had damaged the consulate's outer defences and allowed the attackers to breach the perimeter and begin shooting at the compound's buildings. A spokesman for the Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in Herat, a Western province near Iran's border.

Journalist Esmatullah Koshar reported that “an armed clash was underway near the US consulate building” in Herat.

“The explosion was carried out by a vehicle borne suicide bomber outside US consulate,” he wrote, adding there was “a dense smoke in the air.”

The modern definition of ‘racist’ is someone who’s winning an argument with a liberal.
