Terrorists attack Indian camp in Afghan

Kabul, Apr 10: Reminding India yet again that it's presence is not welcome in Afghanistan, militants launched an attack on Indian road construction camp in Khost province"s Domanda district on Saturday, Apr 10.

In the attack, which comes just a month after the Feb 28 Kabul attack, the militants burnt vehicles and equipment scaring the workers away from the camp.

Interior Ministry's statement said that no loss of lives or injuries were reported in the attack which took place in the wee hours of Saturday, Apr 10.

Taliban, which is an active militant group in the mountainous eastern region of Afghanistan, is suspected to have carried out the strike.

By launching such attacks the terrorists aim at washing off  foreign involvement in the country. India has taken up several projects involving development and medical facilities.

Terror elements also want to disrupt the stability of the central government, which is trying to improve conditions in the underdeveloped parts of the country and extend its mandate.

In Feb 2010, the Taliban launched attacks which seemed to have specifically targeted Indians in Kabul. In the serial bombings 17 people were killed, out of which 10 were Indians. A guesthouse where Indians stayed was among the targets.

Following the attack, there were questions if India should withdraw from Afghanistan and bring back all the workers posted there.
