    A former Afghan president, along with four other people, has been assassinated in a suicide attack in Kabul, the capital.

    Burhanuddin Rabbani, who served as president during the 1990s, was recently the head of the High Peace Council, tasked by Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, to reach out to the Taliban for talks.
