Elusive Peace in Afghanistan Rabbani Murder Puts Taliban Negotiations in Doubt

Former Afghan President Burhanuddin Rabbani, the head of a peace council that was supposed to begin negotiations with the Taliban, was killed in a suicide attack last week in Kabul. His murder makes the chances of peace in Afghanistan look even more distant.
