Green Village Attacked by Taliban
A foreign workers compound located in Kabul called "Green Village" was attacked by the Taliban. Four Taliban suicide bombers lost their lives in the attack. It was the second attack on foreign workers within a week time span. The Taliban tried to break into the compound by detonating a car packed with explosives at the entrance of the compound but they were unsuccessful in breaching the housing complex. The compound was targeted in October 2013 and in May 2012. The 2012 attacked killed seven guards and several civilians.
