The World : 20 Die in Kabul Shelling

Muslim guerrillas rained more than 50 rockets on Kabul, killing at least 20 people and wounding 51 in what appeared to be the most savage shelling of the Afghan capital this year, according to government officials and hospital workers. Among the facilities hit was an ammunition depot near Kabul’s airport, where witnesses had reported explosions and fire. Afghanistan’s Supreme Defense Council held emergency meetings to evaluate the attacks on Kabul, which has come under increased shelling in the last week from the Muslim rebels fighting to overthrow the pro-Soviet Afghan government.
