Last night, my first night in Kabul, a rocket struck just outside the compound. I think I heard it, and I definitely heard the alarm in my sleep, but I guess I was pretty out of it as it didn't even register with me until I heard others talking about it today. Locals said it was likely a 107mm rocket.

There was another suicide bomb today, this time in Kandahar. The news reported another four Afghan dead as a result. It is sad to hear about suicide bombers and based on traditional Afghan warrior culture, of which suicide bombing is not a tradition, it is a fair bet that those behind the bombings are foreign. It could be that there is an element of the local population being radicalized into such acts but again, this would likely lead back to a foreign element.
