Rockets hit Kabul as Afghan delegates debate new constitution

Three rockets hit Kabul on the third day of a convention to adopt a new constitution, as delegates warned Afghanistan risked being plunged into civil war again unless it backs a strong president. The rockets landed in populated areas but no-one was injured, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said Tuesday. “Forensic teams will be making reports in due course,” ISAF said in a statement. The rockets landed near Kabul airport, only several kilometres (miles) from the site of the loya jirga (grand assembly) in a huge white tent in Kabul’s tightly guarded polytechnic institute. One rocket came within 15 metres (yards) of a Kuwaiti women’s association for women and street children. Taliban militants claimed responsibility and warned of further attacks to disrupt the loya jirga. Full Story
