Smoke Seen Rising From Afgh. Safe Zone

Thu Apr 20, 2006 3:57 am

From CNN: Smoke has been seen rising from the area considered the safest part of Afghanistan, according to CNN.

If confirmed, this would mean that insurgents have scored a rare victory in attacking an area considered off limits to rebel attacks.

Source: CNN cable news.

Preliminary reports: probably a rocket. It was fired at night-which would make it difficult to spot those responsible.(Imagine someone firing off a rocket in YOUR safe and secure home town:would they have any difficulty in doing so ?)

^^Thanks for that.

It might have been slightly overplayed by CNN, in retrospect.
