Officials: Homicide Bomber Attacks Afghan Soldiers in Bus, at Least 6 Dead

A homicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden car into a minibus full of Afghan soldiers south of Kabul Wednesday, killing at least six, a witness said.

Two officials at the scene said several people were killed and injured. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

Amir Mohammad, a resident who witnessed the attack and helped load the dead into ambulances, said at least six Afghan soldiers were killed and a number were injured.

The bomber was in a Toyota Corolla that struck the bus in the Chihulsutoon area south of Kabul, said Aziz Ahmad, an Afghan army officer at the site of the blast.

It was the third suicide attack in the area in the eight days.
