US Consulate Attack: 4 Afghans Killed

The U.N. Security Council has condemned the militant attack on the U.S. consulate in the western Afghan town of Herat that killed three Afghan guards and one interpreter. Nearly 20 people were wounded in the assault. 

The Security Council said late Friday “terrorism in all its forms and manifestations is criminal and unjustifiable.” 

Officials say the Taliban engaged in a gunfight and a suicide bombing just outside the consulate early Friday. International security forces returned fire and authorities say all the militants, some wearing suicide vests, were killed in the exchange.

The Security Council said no terrorist act can reverse “the path towards Afghan-led peace, democracy and stability in Afghanistan.”
