KABUL Gunmen set off an explosion Tuesday at the entrance of one of Kabul's busiest hospitals before storming the building, which includes a maternity ward, killing 13, including two newborns.
The attackers battled for hours with Afghan security forces. According to the interior minister, the rest of those slain were nurses and mothers. Some 15 others were injured. The hospital is one of the busiest in western Kabul and houses a maternity ward run by Doctors Without Borders.
In March, gunmen stormed a Sikh temple, killing 25, and earlier that month shooters killed 32 at an ethnic Hazara and Shiite gathering.
Photos and videos from the scene circulating on social media showed police forces carrying newborns to emergency medical teams nearby. One photo showed a woman lying on her back crumpled up against a hospital room wall, a small baby lying in her arms.
Health officials said the hospitals maternity health program is one of the most well-respected in Kabul, providing services to thousands of women every month.
Also Tuesday, a suicide bomber attacked a funeral ceremony of a police officer in eastern Afghanistan. The explosion killed 15 and wounded 56, according to the provincial governors office.
The Taliban denied responsible for both attacks Tuesday.

Religion of Peace
[dreamy sigh] Such a peaceful religion. </liberal>
How can anyone think God wants this?
Christian immigrants maybe?
And some students made death threats against a professor for saying islam is a violent religion.
What a heartbreaking situation. God certainly doesn’t want carnage like that to happen, but His adversary does. I don’t think we’ll ever know until the very end why the adversary is allowed to get away with it.
Obviously the Canadian and US libtards should go right over there and establish gun control.
Is it my imagination or does it seem to be everywhere Muslims go, there is murder and destruction.
ISIS was doing that. Even tossing them in the air and bayoneting them.t
This is who they are.
Doctors Without Borders works in difficult and dangerous conditions,
Muslims and Democrats both enjoy their baby murder.
Maybe it was those two white supremacists in Georgia!
Or Christians, yeah. That's the ticket!
Now where's my Handmaiden's Tale costume?

Oh, those fun-loving, peace-loving moozlums. What a wonderful “culture”. Aren’t they a continuing barrel of laughs?
Moslems don’t worship God.
Why are we there?
What I’m reading is this was a Haqqani op, in coordination with Daesh.
Taliban said it was Daesh. Probably is just Taliban Propaganda since Haqqani is part of the Taliban.
You know the same Taliban that is the US’ newest BFF in Afghanistan....
I think my cat could come up with saner Foreign Policy than our Governments. For starters, get the hell out.
*** Why are we there? ***
The simple breakdown: Rare earth minerals, and Opium.
China has mining rights there. We protect the poppies.
