Suicide Bomber Rams His Car into NATO Convoy and Commuter Bus, 18 Killed

A suicide car bomber deployed by the Taliban rammed into a NATO convoy and a commuter bus filled with Afghan civilians at rush hour this morning, killing 18 people – including five American troops.

NATO, U.S. and Afghan officials described the attack and gave death tolls to several news agencies. The Taliban claimed responsibility for it on a website and in phone calls to foreign media, saying its bomber, a local Kabul man, was driving a Toyota minivan packed with 1,650 pounds of explosives, AOL News informs .

Zabiullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, said the attack occurred at 8:15 a.m. (11:45 p.m. Monday ET), and that the attacker was able to "destroy five foreign vehicles and damage one more."

A NATO spokesman confirmed that five U.S. military vehicles were destroyed along with 13 civilian vehicles. One of the civilian vehicles was a bus filled with people. Hours after the blast, a nearby field was littered with charred body parts, some thrown hundreds of meters from the blast site, CNN reports.
