One of the victims of a fatal attack on a CIA base in Afghanistan last week was a Jordanian intelligence official, according to a Monday report in the Washington Post. After the blast, the CIA lowered the bomb's official death toll from eight to seven, the Washington Post reported, claiming that the Jordanian was the eighth victim. Jordan's King Abdullah II and his wife, Rania, reportedly attended the official's military funeral on Saturday. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.
