On December 30, 2009, in the Afghanistan city of Khowst, Jordanian doctor Humam Khalil Abu Mulal al-Balawi entered a meeting of CIA agents for a briefing as an informant for the agency. He detonated a suicide vest killing five CIA agents and two contractors working for the CIA. Other deaths included the Jordanian Intelligence Case Officer who vouched for Dr al-Balawi and the Afghan national in charge of external security at the base who had driven al-Balawi from the Pakistan border to Khowst.
As a sign of respect and trust, al-Balawi was not searched prior to entering the meeting.
