Islamist atrocity of the week: bomb kills 10 at university

A bombing early last Friday 19 July has been attributed to Taliban insurgents.

Ten people were killed, among them students.

Kabul, Afghanistan - As law students waited outside Kabul University to take fourth-year exams shortly after daybreak on Friday, a suicide bomber drove up and detonated an explosive device, killing 10 people and wounding 33.

The bombing was the latest in an aggressive series of attacks by insurgents in the 10 days since American and Taliban negotiators suspended peace talks in Doha, Qatar, that were aimed at reaching a political settlement and a cease-fire in the 18-year-old war.

It's not known whether the blast was caused by a suicide bomber or a magnetic 'sticky bomb' attached to the underside of a vehicle.
