Attack on NATO Convoy in Kabul Kills 8 Civilians

A suicide bomb aimed at a NATO convoy in Kabul killed eight civilians and wounded at least 25 others Wednesday. Officials said the attack targeted a convoy of armored personnel carriers, and the explosion went off during morning rush hour on one of the Afghan capital’s busiest streets. NATO spokesman Bill Salvin, a U.S. Navy captain, said three U.S. service members were among the wounded in the attack. Coalition forces” armed personnel carriers—designed to withstand such blasts—were largely undamaged and were able to return to a base, said witnesses.
