Bomb Damages U.N. Office in Afghanistan

In another attack on a foreign aid group in southern Afghanistan, a car bomb exploded outside a United Nations office here Tuesday, wounding at least one person, a U.N. official said. The explosion, in Kandahar’s upscale residential area of Shehr-e-Nau, occurred in a car parked in front of a home being used as a workplace by the U.N. Office Project Support, said Siddiqullah, an Afghan who is in charge of humanitarian operations for the United Nations in southern Afghanistan. The blast, which occurred minutes after U.N. employees had left the building at the end of their work day, smashed a front gate, cracked walls in the building and broke its windows, said Siddiqullah, who like many Afghans only uses one name. A man driving by on a motorcycle was wounded by the blast, said Siddiqullah. Full Story
