A mortar shell has slammed into a school--just east of the Afghan capital, Kabul.
Officials say one child is dead, and about 30 others are injured.
The victims are all about 12 years old.
At this point, authorities aren't sure who fired the mortar.
But they're blaming Taliban and al-Qaida fighters who they say are trying to sabotage Afghanistan's interim government.

(( LOCATOR: HOUSTON
The defense and prosecution arrived at the courthouse-- steeled for another day of emotional testimony from Rusty Yates-- the husband of accused murderer-- Andrea Yates.

(NAT)

Yesterday--Rusty and Andrea both cried openly in court when the defense played a home video of the birth of their fifth child-- Mary. Rusty called Andrea "wonderful"-- and "very involved" with their children-- an image in stark contrast with the woman who killed her 5-children.
Rocking in his chair Rusty described what he considered his wife's rapid onset of post-partum depression.
Rusty said Andrea never showed any signs of mental illness until 1999 when she gave birth to their fourth child.
Four months later, Rusty testified, his wife tried to committ suicide twice. During the second attempt, Rusty says Andrea stood in front of a mirror with a knife to her throat, saying 'let me do this.' Soon after Andrea was admitted into a mental hospital and placed on anti-psychotic medication. That's when this psychiatrist recommended that the yates' should stop having children... saying another birth could turn tragic.
But Rusty testified the anti-psychotic medication had returned Andrea quote: 'back to her old self'. Against the advice of their psychiatrist, they had fifth child Mary.

((San Antonian Ashley Friedrich preps the nursery ready for her baby girl, due in just a few weeks.
Only a year ago, she and her husband mourned the loss of their first child, Sadie, who died of SIDS.
(("It is absolutely the worst thing a parent can go through to lose their child," the mother said. "That's what's scary. You don't know if it's going to be your child that dies or not." ))
There's a new product designed to give parents peace of mind and cut down the risk Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
It's the first product endorsed by the SIDS Alliance, the Halo SleepSack wearable blanket takes the place of fluffy loose bedding, implicated in some SIDS cases.
The wearable blanket zips from the top and has no sleeves - nothing to block the breathing of babies like 7-month-old Peyton.
Marilyn Forrest/Center for Infant Loss (("Babies who sleep in these sacks sleep better. One, because their blankets are not getting bunched up on their bodies. But also because they're cozy," ))
Experts say babies breathing in their exhaled carbon dioxide is considered a risk factor for SIDS, which is why it's recommended infants sleep without toys and without the popular bumper pads surrounding them.
(("It's the best setting for keeping a baby safe,"))
A father who lost his baby to SIDS invented the sack. It comes in a variety of sizes and colors and includes the "Back to Sleep" logo to remind parents of the safest sleeping position.
(("If you can see the logo, then they're in the right position,"))
Ashley and Steven Friedrich hope the "sleep sack" catches on.
Steven Friedrich/Lost Child To SIDS (( "I think it's great. I think more people need to know about it, need to be aware of and know can actually happen," ))
The Halo SleepSack wearable blanket sells for about $30. The current model is made of fleece, the company is coming out with a cotton version next month. ))
