Afghanistan blames foreign agency for Kabul blast

A massive suicide bombing against India's embassy in Kabul received support from foreign intelligence agencies, Afghanistan said in a security report released Tuesday, as Afghan officials heaped blame on Pakistan for the carnage. Pakistan's prime minister denied that its intelligence service was behind the attack. Speaking in Malaysia, Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani said his country has no interest in destabilizing Afghanistan, noting that both countries are fighting the common enemy of terrorism. But the Afghan report said terrorists had entered the country after receiving training, and logistical support from across the border, a reference to Pakistan. The report by the Ministry of Defense and the country's national security adviser was discussed by Afghanistan's Cabinet shortly after Monday's embassy attack, which killed 41 people and wounded 150. "Without any doubt the terrorists could not have succeeded in this act without the support of foreign intelligence agencies," the report said. The blast was the deadliest in Kabul since the fall of the Taliban in 2001.
