Powerful Blast Targets NATO Convoy in Kabul

A powerful blast targeting an armored NATO convoy in Kabul killed at least eight people and wounded 25 on Wednesday, including three coalition soldiers, officials said days after the Taliban announced their spring offensive.
The attack, which came during morning rush hour on a busy road near the US embassy and NATO headquarters, killed mostly civilians, an interior ministry spokesman told AFP without giving a breakdown, AFP reported. NATO said three coalition soldiers had received “non-life threatening wounds”. No group has yet claimed the blast, which underscores the threat faced by international and Afghan forces against the resurgent Taliban, as the US seeks to craft a new strategy in Afghanistan and NATO mulls boosting troop levels.The blast, which NATO said was an improvised explosive device damaged two heavily armored Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles carrying the foreign soldiers and left a small crater in the road, witnesses and an AFP photographer said.
