Explosion in Afghan capital wounds civilians

Explosion in Afghan capital wounds civilians

An Afghan official says a suicide bombing in eastern Kabul has wounded several civilians.
The blast comes two days before an international conference in Kabul hosting representatives from about 60 nations.
An eyewitness says a suicide bomber on foot targeted a passing NATO convoy. The international force says it is not aware of any international troops being involved in Sunday's explosion.
Interior Ministry spokesman Zemeri Bashary says the suicide attacker was on a bicycle and detonated in a busy market area. He says the target of the attack is unclear.
University student Tamim Ahmad says he saw the attack. He says a man on foot ran up to a passing convoy of international troops and detonated an explosives-laden vest. He says the convoy did not stop.
