'Kabul attacks not targeted at Indians'
Washington, Mar 3: Richard Holbrooke, special US Representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan, has rejected reports that the terror strikes in Kabul specifically targeted Indians.

"In regard to this attack, I don't accept the fact that this was an attack on an Indian facility like the (Indian) embassy. They were foreigners, non-Indian foreigners hurt. It was a soft target. Let's not jump to conclusions," he told reporters in a news briefing while responding to a question.

His statement comes despite the strong clues pointing that the Kabul attacks suspected to have been launched by Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) were aimed specifically at Indians along with Afghan President Hamid Karzai's statement establishing the same.

"I understand why everyone in Pakistan and everyone in India always focuses on the other. But please, let's not draw a conclusion for which there's no proof," Holbrooke added.
