afghan president escapes assassination attempt.

Karzai has survived several assassination attempts: in 2002 a guard opened fire on his vehicle in the southern city of Kandahar. In 2004, two rockets were fired at his chopper but missed.

Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai escaped unhurt Sunday from an assassination attempt for which the Taliban took responsibility. Three people were killed in the attack, which occurred at an official celebration in the nation's capital.
