A car bomb exploded outside an Afghan hospital in Logar province on Saturday morning, killing at least 20 people and wounding 23 more, according to local officials. Patients, visitors, and staff were among the victims, and the death toll is expected to climb as rescuers sift through the rubble from the leveled building. Death toll numbers have been inconsistent, indicating that it has been difficult for officials to get accurate information from the isolated region. The Taliban, who has claimed responsibility for previous suicide bombings as part of their aggressive Spring offensive, denied any involvement in the attack. "We strongly condemn this inhuman attack which was carried out by some other elements who are trying to defame the Taliban and blame us for doing this," said a tribe spokesperson. The governor's office in Logar province initially believed the bomb was a suicide attack, but then discovered that the car was parked and vacated before it exploded.
