Police blamed al-Qaida for twin suicide bombings in the Afghan capital that killed nine people, while President Hamid Karzai said Tuesday he expects terror attacks to continue in his country "for much more time to come." Security forces in Kabul raided houses and set up roadblocks fearing more bombings. Police suspicions of al-Qaida involvement reinforced fears that Osama bin Laden's terror network has teamed up with its old ally, the Taliban, who claimed responsibility for the first major assault on foreign troops in Kabul in more than a year.
