Attack on Red Cross in eastern Afghanistan

--Part audio as incoming -- Chaos on the streets of eastern Afghanistan as the International Committee of the Red Cross comes under attack. At least one Afghan guard is killed the second major assault on a humanitarian organization in less than a week. Seven staff members, believed to be the total number of foreign workers at the ICRC in Jalalabad, were rescued by Afghan police during the attack. Authorities say a suicide bomber and three gunmen were involved in the attack. No one is immediately claiming responsibility for the attack -- but concerns are mounting over how Afghan security forces will cope with an intensifying insurgency once most foreign troops leave by the end of next year.
