Peace Corps Members Injured in Kabul

Three Icelandic Peace Corps members were injured when a suicide bomber struck a market in Kabul on 23 October. An American interpreter and an 11-year old local girl were killed in the attack.

Members of the Icelandic Peace Corps are involved in setting up the Kabul International Airport.

Hallgrímur Sigurdsson, director of the Kabul Airport, witnessed the suicide bombing. He told local news sources that the attack was particularly unexpected because tensions in the area had seemed to have eased.

The attack was attributed to the Taliban.
