Afghan official: Car bomb hits near U.S. consulate in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan An Afghan governor says militants have detonated a car bomb around 60 meters (66 yards) away from the U.S. consulate in the western city of Herat, wounding seven civilians.
A gunbattle between militants and security forces in the area was still going on Friday morning.
Sayed Fazlullah Wahidi, the governor of Herat province, says it's unclear if any of the militants managed to get inside the compound.
No group claimed responsibility for the attack, but Taliban insurgents have often used combined car bomb and gun assaults against various targets in Afghanistan.
A U.S. Embassy spokesman in Kabul declined immediate comment.

Obama will decide if an emergency security force will be sent in to secure the consulate as soon as he's done with this whole Syria thing.
