Peacekeepers Killed in Kabul Blast

A car bomb has killed four international peacekeepers and injured dozens of other people in an apparent suicide attack on a bus in the Afghan capital, Kabul. The force of the explosion threw the vehicle off the road, a few kilometres east of the city centre, near a base used by German and Dutch troops of the International Security Assistance Force (Isaf). The attack is the deadliest assault on the Isaf force since it arrived in Afghanistan to support the government of Hamid Karzai after the removal of the Taleban. President Karzai offered his condolences and said the peacekeepers had given their lives for the Afghan people. Isaf had confirmed that three German soldiers had been killed before the German authorities said a fourth was also dead. The other 29 peacekeepers on board the bus were injured, at least seven seriously, as were several Afghan civilians who were near the scene of the blast. Full Story
