UN Worker Among Victims in Afghan Internet Cafe Bombing


A United Nations worker from Burma was among the three people killed by Saturday's bombing at an Internet cafe in Kabul, Afghanistan.

U.N. officials said Sunday the victim worked for the U.N. Office of Project Services, but did not release his name. The man had been living at a guest house connected to the Internet cafe.

The other two men killed were Afghans, and authorities in Kabul suspect one of them was a suicide bomber.

At least five other people were wounded.

The blast destroyed the cafe, which was frequented by foreigners.

There has been no claim of responsibility.
