"Suicide bombers stormed a government compound during a security meeting and killed at least 19 in the latest attempt to assassinate a senior official of Hamid Karzai’s regime. ... The attack began with a car bomb at the front gate which blew a hole in the wall and allowed five suicide bombers, some wearing police uniform, into the compound in the market town of Charikar. They struck as the governor, Abdul Basir Salangi, hosted a security meeting reportedly attended by several Nato advisers." (08/14/11)
