5 UAE diplomats killed in Afghan attack

The United Arab Emirates says five of its diplomats died in a bombing in Afghanistan’s Kandahar that killed at least 11 people and wounded 17 others, including Juma al-Kaabi, the UAE ambassador to Afghanistan.
The official Emirati news agency, WAM, said the officials were “on a mis­sion to carry out humanitarian, educa­tional and development projects”.
The blast, which struck the provin­cial governor’s office during a visit by the UAE delegation, was one of a string of bombings that hit three Afghan cities on Tuesday, killing nearly 50 people and wounding 100.
Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the UAE’s prime minister and vice president, said on Twitter that “there is no human, moral or religious justification for the bomb­ing and killing of people trying to help” others.
