DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: A situation out of Kabul. We had reported it earlier, but apparently, there is a new twist on the situation with the death of an Afghan government leader. High-ranking officials there now say that this official was stabbed to death in a deliberate attack. Earlier reports had said that frustrated pilgrims who were trying to get to Mecca beat the minister of civil aviation and tourism to death. Now one official says the death was the result of a deliberate planned attack. They are calling it an assassination and saying high government officials will be arrested in this case.

Once again, the situation with the death of this tourism minister in Afghanistan not an attack by some pilgrims trying to get to Mecca. Instead, they are now calling it an assassination.
