Firefighters are seen extinguishing a burning car at the site of a suicide bomb attack in Kabul on May 2. Taliban insurgents claimed a suicide attack in the Afghan capital Kabul, shortly after US President Barack Obama left the city after an overnight visit.
Obama had used the “surprise” visit to deliver a speech marking the anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden, and to highlight his administration’s success in what the previous administration had called the War on Terror.
The Obama administration has opened negotiations with the Taliban, which sheltered bin Laden and Al Qaeda for years, and shows no sign of relenting in its terrorist campaign, even as U.S. forces continue to withdraw from the region.
