Maternity ward, funeral attacked in Afghanistan
Three gunmen disguised as police burst into the Doctors Without Borders maternity clinic in Kabul, Afghanistan, and started shooting.

No group has claimed responsibility for the massacre of 24 people, including 16 women and two newborns. At least six babies lost their mothers in an attack that has shaken even the war-torn nation numbed by years of militant violence.

"In my more than 20-year career I have not witnessed such a horrific, brutal act," said Dr. Hassan Kamel, director of Ataturk Children's Hospital in Kabul.

The raid, on the same day that at least 32 people died in a suicide bomb attack on a funeral in the eastern province of Nangarhar, threatens to derail progress towards U.S.-brokered peace talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government.
