A logging truck rigged with explosives detonated near Afghanistan’s capital, killing 25 people Thursday morning, local officials said.
The attack near Kabul seemed to be targeted at NATO troops in the area, but there were no reports of casualties or injuries to coalition troops, said Deen Mohammed Darwesh, a spokesman for the governor of Logar province.
Twenty-one civilians and four policemen were killed in the attack, said Zamarai Bashari, spokesman for the Interior Ministry.
Ten other people were wounded in the attack. Many of the wounded were students going to school, the Interior Ministry spokesman said.
