Newsline: Siege near India’s consulate in Afghanistan ends after 25 hours

A 25-hour gun and bomb siege near the Indian consulate in Afghanistan’s Mazar-i-Sharif city ended late Monday, after a bloody weekend assault on an air base in India near the Pakistan border. The lethal assaults on Indian installations threaten to derail Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s bold diplomatic outreach to arch-rival Pakistan following his first official visit to Afghanistan last month. No group has so far claimed responsibility for the raid on the diplomatic mission in northern Afghanistan, which left at least one policeman dead and 11 others wounded.
