KABUL (Reuters) - Gunmen in Afghanistan killed 11 Chinese road workers after bursting into their compound early on Thursday, an embassy official in Kabul said. <p>The provincial governor blamed the raid on militants bent on destabilizing the government of President Hamid Karzai by attacking foreign and Afghan troops as well as aid organizations as the country prepares for landmark elections in September. <p>The incident was another blow for the leader, currently visiting the United States, who faces growing instability that is undermining vital assistance missions and reconstruction in the war-shattered country of 28 million people. <p>*** The "incident" was a "blow for the leader"? Good lord. ***
