Suicide bomber kills 30 as Afghan violence spreads

The Taliban have also decided to pick up the pace after a little lull in the action in assghanistan, Maybe they have been watching how the Muslim world is going to shit all around them.
These pukebags are probably wondering how to capitalize on it.

(Reuters) - A suicide bomber killed at least 30 people in a government office in northern Afghanistan on Monday, officials said, with violence spiraling across the country even before an expected spring offensive.

Afghan and NATO-led forces were also investigating two serious incidents involving civilian casualties, the latest killing up to six people when a misdirected air strike appeared to hit a home in eastern Nangarhar province.

In Kunduz province in the north, the center of a growing front in the Taliban-led insurgency, a suicide bomber killed at least 30 people, Mohammad Ayoub Haqyar, the chief of Emam Saheb district, told Reuters. Another 40 were wounded.

Haqyar said the bomber struck while people were queuing to collect identity cards inside a government office. Kunduz police chief, Abdul Qayum Ibrahimi, said three police were among the dead and that many civilians were wounded.
