German Peacekeepers Killed in Kabul

Today's bomb attack on German peacekeepers in is, to my knowledge, first post-WW2 incident in which German servicemen died because of the hostile action.

Croatian military police platoon in Kabul is subordinated to the ISAF unit commanded by Germans. This would undoubtedly lead to some in Croatia demanding Croatian military pullout from Kabul. Only few days ago Croatian television reported "minor" incident of mobs throwing stones at the vehicle carrying Croatian MPs (which didn't cause any injuries).
