President Hamid Karzai offered condolences Friday, 12 October 2007, to families of the victims of Afghanistan’s deadly insurgency as the war-weary nation marked the start of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr. As millions of Afghans began Eid celebrations with special prayers, there was no let-up in the violence. A bomb exploded outside a mosque in southern Helmand province, killing at least two people. Karzai said those committing such attacks were not Muslims, as he delivered a speech to mark the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.
