Security Contractor Killed in Afghanistan

Scot Mark Duffus dies in Afghanistan suicide bombing

The attack happened early on Tuesday in the north of Kabul

A Scot from Moray has been killed in Afghanistan.
Mark Duffus, 41, from Forres was working a security contractor.
He was among at least seven people who died in a suicide attack on the Kabul base of a logistics firm supplying Nato forces in Afghanistan.
Five guards, four of them Nepali, were among those killed in the gun and bomb attack, which happened early on Tuesday.
The Kabul police chief told the BBC the four insurgents, who were all killed, had a truck full of explosives.
Smoke was seen rising above the scene of the attack in the north of the city.
Reports suggested the bombers' vehicle was stopped outside the facility by guards.
When the explosives were detonated, gunmen began shooting at guards in a 30-minute battle, officials said.
As well as the Nepali guards, two Afghan truck drivers who were waiting to enter the compound were killed and an Afghan guard.
Kabul police chief Gen Ayub Salangi said all four attackers were killed and the blast from the truck left a large crater in the ground.
This is the latest in a series of attacks on targets in the Afghan capital in recent months.

Edit: I believe he worked for Blue Hackle -

An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Cure
