Taliban Take Responsibility for Blast Outside US Compound in Kabul

A car bomb exploded outside of a compound housing a U.S. military contractor in the Afghan capital Monday, blowing apart an exterior wall, killing at least two Afghan workers and wounding more than a dozen other people, company representatives and police said. In another part of the country, a suspected landmine killed 10 young girls, police said.

The blast on the outskirts of Kabul sent a plume of smoke up in the air and shook windows more than a mile away in the city center.
