(The Christian Science Monitor) – Afghans are reeling from the latest high-profile attack in Kabul, in which suicide attackers detonated a car bomb beside the American University of Afghanistan, killed seven students inside, and mounted an overnight standoff that ended at dawn Thursday with the killing of two gunmen. A total of 13 people died at the school, a toll that included security guards, students, and lecturers. It was a major blow to a community already roiled by the kidnapping two weeks ago of two teachers, an American and Australian who have not been heard from since.
