Insurgents Kill 5 in Afghanistan       10/24 07:07

   KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghan police say five people were killed and two 
were wounded when gunmen opened fire on a car in an attack in one of the 
country's eastern provinces.

   Friday's attack took place in Nangahar province as seven civilians were 
travelling through Khogyani district early in the morning.

   The provincial police spokesman, Hazrat Hussain Mashraqiwal, says the attack 
was carried out by "insurgents," a term that usually refers to the Taliban, and 
that police are investigating.

   Nangahar province borders Pakistan, where the Taliban leadership has safe 
havens in the North Waziristan tribal region. Khogyani is nestled in the 
mountains that line the border and has long been a hotbed of insurgent activity.
