Damn, Afghanis are ruthless

First they whack the guy.

Afghan Governor Assassinated in Suicide Bombing

A suicide bomber with explosives strapped to his body assassinated a popular governor in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday, two days after a powerful car bombing killed 16 people, including two U.S. soldiers, in downtown Kabul, the capital.

Hakim Taniwal, 63, the scholarly and soft-voiced governor of Paktia province, was a close confidant of President Hamid Karzai and a political figure known for his skill at bringing together hostile groups in the country's volatile tribal regions near the Pakistani border.

Then they bomb his funeral.

Afghan governor's funeral bombed; 6 dead

A suicide bomber struck Monday at a funeral for a provincial governor assassinated by the Taliban a day earlier, and four senior members of the government at the service escaped unhurt, officials and witnesses said. At least six people were killed and dozens were wounded.

Now, I don't think even the Mafia would go that far.
Dat ruefless, dog.
