Afghanistan Attacks Kill At Least 19
(KUTV) Two attacks happened in Afghanistan, killing at least 19 people. The first attack occurred when a suicide bomber on a bicycle hit the main gate of the Ministry of Defense.
The Taliban called it a message for U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel--who is in the Afghanistan capital of Kabul.
The second attack happened near coalition forces conducting a training exercise. An Afghan policeman recognized the explosive vest and wrapped the man in a bear hug to lesson the blast and save lives.
