8 killed as powerful blast targets foreign forces in Kabul

Srinagar: A powerful blast targeting a convoy of foreign forces near the US embassy in Kabul killed at least eight people and wounded 25 Wednesday, mainly civilians, DawnNews reported quoting officials.
Reports said the foreign troops were travelling in the armoured personnel carriers that are standard for international forces moving around Kabul.
The blast came when a white Toyota Corolla exploded as the convoy drove by. It was not immediately clear if it was a car bomb or a suicide attack.
The US has around 8,400 troops in Afghanistan with about another 5,000 from Nato allies. A recent UN report showed that Kabul province had the highest number of civilian casualties in the first quarter of the year due to attacks in the capital.
