Prominent Afghan family died in grocery bombing

Six members of a prominent Afghan family were among those killed when a Taliban suicide bomber blew himself up at a supermarket in Kabul.
In a statement issued on Saturday, President Hamid Karzai expressed his deep sadness over the deaths of Dr. Massoud Yama, a young doctor at a military hospital, his wife, Hamida Barmaki, a political science professor at Kabul University, and their four children. She was an activist and served on the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission.
Yama's mother and Barmaki's mother-in-law is former Afghan senator Maboba Hoqiqmal, who currently is Karzai's legal affairs adviser.
Afghan police say at least eight people _ some of them foreigners _ died in the attack. Fifteen others were injured.
