Bombing fallout is a big threat to Afghan stability


Previous attacks in Kabul have been blamed on the Haqqani militant network, which is based in Afghanistan and is thought to have ties to the Taliban, al-Qaida and Pakistan’s spy agency.

To the mourners burying the dead in Kabul and planting red flags in dusty cemeteries to mark the fresh graves, achieving stability in Afghanistan is more important than which militant group was responsible for the latest attacks.

Mohaqeq Zada, a member of the Shiite council in Kabul, said the bombing showed no one can count on the government for protection.

“There have been so many attacks, even against government officials, and still they can’t stop these things,” Zada said.
