Afghan President Hamid Karzai Survives Assassination Attempt

"Afghan President Hamid Karzai survived an assassination attempt at a military ceremony in Kabul on Sunday, but one person was killed and nine others were wounded in the attack.

Taliban insurgents opened fire with automatic weapons, forcing Karzai, as well as government ministers and foreign diplomats, including ambassador Arif Lalani from Canada, to dive for cover.

A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it had deployed four militants with suicide vests and guns to target the president."
