Three militants wearing explosives-rigged vests killed at least nine civilians, most of them children, in a botched attack Saturday on the Indian consulate in an eastern Afghan city near the border with Pakistan, security officials said.
India on Tuesday rejected an asylum request from Edward Snowden, the former defense contractor who is wanted in the U.S. on charges of leaking National Security Agency secrets.
Japan and North Korea began talks Thursday in Mongolia that Tokyo hopes will shed light on decades-old abductions.
India's External Affairs Ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said that all Indian officials in the consulate were safe and condemned the attack.
"This attack once again highlighted that the main threat to Afghanistan's security and stability stems from terrorism and the terror machine that continues to operate from beyond its borders," he said in statement. "India will not be deterred from its commitment to assist Afghanistan in its reconstruction and development effort."
