German, Afghan Die in Kabul, Finn Is Abducted; 20 Afghan Policemen Killed in Province of Zabul

A German aid worker and an Afghan guard were killed and a Finnish woman kidnapped as gunmen stormed an international guest house in Kabul last night, the AFP (Agence France-Presse) website reports today (May 21, 2017).

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack on the guest house run by Swedish charity Operation Mercy in the heart of the Afghan capital.

In further attacks roiling Afghanistan, 20 policemen were killed early today when Taliban fighters stormed their outposts in the southern province of Zabul, as the Islamic terrorists escalate their annual spring offensive.

The interior ministry confirmed the brazen Kabul attack, the latest in a series of recent assaults on aid workers in Afghanistan.
