Suicide Bombing Claims More Victims In Afghanistan

Suicide bombers launched another attack in Afghanistan's city of Kabul on Tuesday killing 14 people, The New York Times reported.

The New York Times reported that the attack had been carried out by an 18-year-old woman named Fatima after speaking with a spokesman from the Afghan insurgent group Hezb-i-Islami.

However, CNN reported that the Afghan insurgent group, Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin, took responsibility for the attack and said that the woman, Fatima, was 22-years-old.

There is a lack of consistency between the CNN and New York Times reports, disagreeing on both the exact number of victims and the age of the attacker.

What is consistent in both reports is that the group Hezb-i-Islami took credit for the attack saying that it was an act of retaliation for a video insulting the prophet Muhammad and Islam.

Among the victims of the attack were eight South African citizens, three Afghan citizens and one citizen of Kyrgyzstan, CNN reported.
