More mayhem caused by lunatics. The BBC reports:
A Taliban suicide bomber has attacked the Indian embassy in Kabul, killing at least 17 people in a second attack on the building in little over a year.
Afghan officials say a car bomber blew himself up near the Indian embassy and the Afghan interior ministry.
The Taliban said it carried out the attack and the embassy was the target.
Meanwhile, The Guardian has more cheerful news. The Taliban are apparently claiming they’re not a threat to “The West”.
