See New Yorker for Background

Today I read the New Yorker article on the war in Khost, including some background on the Haqqani Network, the K-G Highway, and the Zadran tribal leaders. Tonight, Haqqani-linked insurgents attacked road crews working on another road project in Patkia province. Security guards, workers, and engineers were attacked in their encampment at night. Of 80 men, 35 were left dead. Only 8 survived unscathed, with another 17 missing and 20 wounded, according to the Globe article.
