Terrorism heats up in Afghanistan with killing of 5 medical workers

Suspected Taliban gunmen ambushed a medical team on their way to a refugee camp in southern Afghanistan today, killing five people and wounding four others, Afghan officials said. The brutal killing, by two men on a motorbike, follows two large-scale ambushes against local police in the last two days, also in southern Afghanistan, representing some of the worst violence against Afghan personnel since the Taliban was defeated in 2001.
