Germany vows to continue Afghanistan rebuilding

Chancellor Angela Merkel vowed Saturday to continue with reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan after a suicide attacker killed three German soldiers and wounded two others at a market in Kunduz. "The German military is carrying out an important mission for the reconstruction and stabilization of Afghanistan," Merkel said in a statement. "It is the goal of the attackers to destroy the established successes of this rebuilding process. The international community is resolved to continue to help the people of Afghanistan ensure a good future for their country through reconstruction."
