Afghan Guards sacrificed their lives thwarting attack

KABUL, Afghanistan — “The heroes in the suicide bombing of the Kabul City Center shopping mall on Monday were not among the police officers or NATO coalition and American Special Forces soldiers who showed up later.

They were Gul Agha and Lal Mohammed, two poorly paid security guards who have what lately has been one of the worst jobs in Afghanistan — screening visitors at the door…. witnesses reported an exchange of gunfire right before the bomber detonated the explosives in his vest. The only fatalities were the bomber and the guards, the police said, and two bystanders were wounded.”
