12 Foreigners Killed in Kabul Bomb Blast

A suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into a minivan near Kabul’s airport killing at least 12 people, including eight South Africans, in an attack claimed as revenge for an anti-Islam movie that has triggered violent protests across the Muslim world.

General Mohammad Zahir, the head of Kabul police’s crime investigation department, confirmed that the bus carrying foreigners had been the target of today’s attack, while Afghans had also died. Those killed were employed by an aviation company at the international airport, the Associated Press reported. French nationals and Russians may also be among the dead, according to Ayub Salangi, Kabul’s police chief.
