KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The American University of Afghanistan says that two of its U.S. employees were among those killed in a Taliban attack on a popular Kabul restaurant that left 21 people dead, including 13 foreigners.
Michael Smith, president of the private nonprofit institution, said Saturday that families of the victims were being informed and arrangements being made to send their remains home.
He did not identify the employees out of respect for the families, but said one had just recently joined the faculty of political science and the other was a member of the student affairs staff.
The university, which has more than 1,000 students, was established in 2006 and has a number of Americans on its staff.
