On the Wednesday, May 02 edition of Amanpour, host Christiane Amanpour interviews the U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan, Ryan Crocker, following President Obama's surprise visit to Afghanistan. Several hours after the VIP visit, a suicide attack killed several people in the capital of Kabul. Amanpour asks Ambassador Crocker how dangerous the city is - and if this attack was timed to the visit. Ambassador Crocker says today's suicide truck bomb was "tragic," but he does not believe the attacks were related to the President's visit and Crocker says Kabul is "a pretty normal, pretty secure city."
The full interview with Ambassador Crocker will air today at 3:00pm ET on CNN International. For more information on this interview, please visit the Amanpour blog.
