Liam Fox on 'horrifying' attack on UN building

Defence Secretary Liam Fox has condemned the "horrifying" attack on the UN in Afghanistan, saying he hopes it is an "aberration" and not a "trend".

At least eight foreign UN workers and four others were killed in an attack on a UN compound in the Afghan city of Mazar-e Sharif on Friday.

The violence happened during a protest over the burning of the Koran in a US church last month.
