Afghan policemen evacuate a wounded person after a suicide bomber struck outside a provincial council headquarters in Pul-i-Khumri, Baghlan province, northern Afghanistan, Monday, May 20, 2013, killing the council chief and at least more than a dozen others, authorities said. Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the bombing saying the killing of civilians shows the “true nature” of the Taliban, who seek to re-establish the strict interpretation of Islamic law they imposed for five years before being ousted in the 2001 U.S.-led invasion over its sheltering of al-Qaida’s terrorist leadership.
