Bomb Shakes U.N. Building in Afghanistan

A bomb exploded outside a house used by United Nations staff in the capital Thursday, demolishing part of a wall around the property and shattering nearby windows but causing no injuries, police said. The blast occurred about a half-mile from the presidential palace and the U.S. Embassy, and at least five miles from the Kabul university where a historic constitutional council is taking place. Gen. Baba Jan, the Kabul police chief, said the explosion was caused by a bomb just before 5 a.m. Police and the international peacekeeping force that patrols the city were both investigating. The attack was at least the third in the capital since the start of the constitutional council on Dec. 14. No one was hurt in the earlier attacks. Full Story
